Open Eyes Laid Back

Before long apps will be wiping our butts and we, others, our children will not notice.

Open Eyes Laid Back is a poem written and shared by Michael Lee Johnson to The Ugly Writers for the month of March 2020.

 

Open Eyes Laid Back

 

 

Open eyes, black-eyed peas,

laid back busy lives,

consuming our hours,

handheld devices

grocery store

“which can Jolly Green Giant peas,

alternatives,

darling, to bring home tonight-

these aisles of decisions.”

Mind gap:

“Before long apps

will be wiping our butts

and we, others, our children

will not notice.”

No worries, outer space,

an app for horoscope, astrology

a co-pilot to keep our cold feet

tucked in.
