Devices on a Train

On a train journey from York to Durham the amount of activity and chatter from people using various devices got me thinking, the poem Devices on a Train is the result – hope you like – please feel free to comment.

laptop, notepad, smart phone

beep, flicker, connect and drone

machines on people’s laps

many little taps

linking to contacts by email and text

looking at messages and selecting the next

constant sound of ring tones

of blackberries and i-phones

the journey has changed from a time before

connecting to others, now at the fore.
