Nick Orf /Eyepatch/

EYEPATCH

 

people watchers have all gone
digital & cell phones have wristwatches
on the endangered species list.
my pulse still tocks & ticks
wishing to synchronize itself
with someone else’s heartbeat but
the closest i ever even get to eye
contact is the cold gaze of the dating
website. i leave the caffeinated daze
of the coffeeshop where
people are all socketed into gadgets,
return to my apartment & put a piece
of electrical tape over the lens of my
laptop’s webcam while i watch free
pornography or else it never
blinks. it never ever blinks.
