Once we got there, we wanted to come back.
You would, too. After all, have you managed
lately to remember the journey is
more important than the destination?
Instead, we’re immediately there, the
moment a place, not the space between two
points. We push some button and off we go,
never staying long enough, for we’ve not
departed, unable to leave because
we are still here, that computer screen our
portal into the infinite, better
in theory than in flesh, needing only
two dimensions for maximum effect
once we remove time and learn to prefer
just the certainties we can never know.
