My sense of time has greatly altered in the last ten days – since my watch battery died.
I am rather enjoying my un-manacled wrist.
Somehow I feel I have more time, these days.
So I have been filling it with facebook.
I kept away from it for years. Then I signed up last autumn, just to look at some photographs
Now I don’t know how anyone lives without it
There are events and opportunities that would otherwise pass me by, I am in touch with people across the globe, I see photographs. Jokes. Meet new people. I feel part of a larger poetry community.
But I don’t like how it calls to me at all hours. And divides me from the Twitter-lovers
And warps my sense of Space.
