Not Even Remotely ~ with audio

 

Not Even Remotely

Separation is the weight I carry,
feebly countered by
a digitized simulacrum.
The scales are out of balance.

What is distance,
when nearness
is measured in pixels,
tones that pass from hand to ear?

They may substitute
for touch, the warmth of presence,
but they cannot replace them.
There will never be enough bandwidth.

I may travel that distance,
share presence for a brief time,
but with every return
I note my own absence.
