We sit across, and then walk past,
All curiosities suppressed.
Our phones are there to entertain
On buses, sidewalks, or the train.
Swift glances are now getting rare
And stranger smiles - extinct.
Too busy, cautious, unaware...
To notice anything.
He sits near her, and she - near him;
Both on their dating apps.
He swipes, she clicks, and not a blink
Between the two has lapsed.
The world has changed a lot, indeed,
Much novelties arose.
To novel lifestyle we concede.
For better or for worse?
