Escape to Cyberspace

Writing Knights Press accepted my chapbook ‘Escape to Cyberspace’ for publication.

Three poems from ‘Escape to Cyberspace:’

 Distraction

People walk the streets
text messaging,
thumbs urgent
to communicate,
no longer linked
to cell phones,
instead enslaved
by tiny screens
that never warn
of approaching danger.

 Senior Search

The refusal
to be left behind
propels seniors
to the internet,
seeking companionship,
friendship, romance,
other benefits,
hoping to avoid
surfing predators
cruising the web
in search of the lonely.

Internet Services

Cybersex
may vex
concerned moms,
prudish wives,
jealous lovers,
social moralists,
but junior,
hubby,
boy friend,
assorted creeps,
won’t catch disease
from small screens.
