Touchscreen by Marshall Davis Jones

Spoken Word - Audio



This piece, TOUCHSCREEN by Nuyorican poet Marshall Davis Jones, is a poke reminding us, reminding me, to shut down our digital selves. Turn to strangers and loved ones to make eye contact and to interact with the fleshy souls of life.

From the gardens of Eden to the branches of Macintosh,
Apple-picking has always come at a great cost.
iPad, iMac, iPhone, iChat
I can do all of these things without making eye contact.
