We Never Leave the House

And why should we?
We have everything we need
right here.

We never look out the window.
What is there to see?
The entire world is on our screen
beneath our fingers.

Our friends, our food
Our Holy Communion
are powered by a new god.
Grant us hearts of silicon.

Houses peel apart like mica.
Windows open to the elements.
There is no one inside of them.
We abandon ourselves.
