0 & 1 run the world

The lowliest digits

The loneliest digits

 

It’s numbers of pictures

you post to reach one person,

and the one doesn’t see it.

 

it’s strange to try to reach 

one person

through one-hundred strangers.

 

Too scared, to reach that

one person, in person.

There are a billion corners

 

to hide around.

If you happen to bump 

into each other, you

 

might exchange buttons,

a vague sign of approval,

an empty heart

 

colored in red.

But no words exchanged

and no plans made.

 

The loneliness stays.
