By Louis Raio

You’re awake

I’m awake

Is it the light that keeps us in unrest?

Or is it the bed which refuses us?

The tiny rings and buzzers and alerts


Every interface designed to pull you in and take you away

Away from where you should be

When you should be there

Away from awareness

We hear a bell, we want our treat

Shackles disguised as stimulation

You may disagree but you are awake

Despite all your cataloged adventures and cherished moments captured in mega pixels

You’ve missed something

You’re missing it right now

I am missing it

I don’t know what it is but as soon as this is posted and as soon as you are reading it know that we have missed it together.
