Some Day

Pia Callis

And, some day, words will also die.
And we’ll just use beeps,
0s and 1s,
and without even noticing
we’ll be back to the simplicity of Morse
upgraded to a fake complexity
flashing lights and sounds.
They’ll sell us change as progress,
we’ll become simpler,
like an ancient word that once encompassed the intangible,
becoming trivial, insufficient.
An “I love you” on autopilot.
