I Made Fun of People Who Walk Around Staring at Their Phones

But that was before
I plugged in a computer brain
and a phone brain
where my actual brain had been,
and when I still read books
on the train
and when I didn’t need company
at all times, and to always
and always and always
check to see who loves me
and who loves me today
and five minutes ago
and two minutes
and now.

For the PAD Chapbook Challenge, Day 7. Prompt: A compulsion poem.
