useless
outdated
outmoded
but i think that’s how the cold gets in

we don’t talk anymore
not me and some hypothetical someone
but we
us
human beings
we run to social media to share our dreams
or we text
expecting instantaneous understanding
that our voices
used to provide
now there is no context
no quiver in the voice to hide

essential information
is transmitted in an essential fashion
with no essence to it

that’s how the cold gets in
