Glowing box

A bustling city sidewalk

people rushing to and fro

would offer up a greeting

ask the time, and say hello

a family at dinner

chatting on about their day

the air filled with such laughter

as children run and play


The faces on the sidewalk

no longer stop to greet

the families don’t sit down

together when they eat

a playground much less vibrant

the children all but lost

they all have been held captive

by a glowing info box
