electronic fix

Animals (not human) have no electronic fix,
unless it's the cat swatting at birds she sees on Animal Planet,
or the dog poking his nose on an iPad screen,
or the chimp being trained to touch and drag.

They can go back to their realm,
happy in how they live. Not so
humans who have electronic addiction
and who cannot resist the screens

that pamper their brain with stimulus,
and who get entrapped in bit torrents
of electronic friends, never to physically meet,
but still satisfy their needs.
