New Fortune Cookie

I can’t see you
for you’re not on my screen
and I know you cannot stand
another useless critique of
millennial tech and attention span
and this isn’t that but
I still cannot see you
and I want to

God, how I want to
shove all this useless
garbage out of the way
the shampoos and cereals
and fidget spinners
and Cthulhu shaped dildoes
and first person shooters
and disgruntled, schoolyard shooters
and raw oyster shooters
and vodka jello shooters

so I can touch you
just effing touch you
on the breasts
on the lips
in the heart

for a moment
for an instant
for a second
for a lifetime
