Digital Vaccines

“Digital Vaccines”

I don’t want
to change”
she said 
adding
“especially
on my
15th Birthday
of all days”

The two 
young
girls hold
each other
They are mere
children
This is the
future where
young adults
must make
tough calls
and decisions
regarding 
their lives
Their future
is up to them

“I don’t like
what my
mom went through
I can’t fathom
it, I’m scared”
They both add
at the same 
time
“I don’t want
to change or
be changed like
the rest
of them!”

One pats 
the pistol
in her
left front
dress pocket
The other
is lying
and
has already
decided
her fate and
future
They have
both clearly
chosen
their 
new directions
fate
and futures
this evening

One day
in the 
not so 
distant
future…
AI is calling
they tap
in their responses
and RSVP
for O.R.
#2
One is a 
decline
the other 
is an acceptance
Previews 
suck
don’t they?
