Images Of Whom We Think We Are


Connected
without a concrete sense
of attachment, no physical
presence of wires or chains
or restraints – nothing that
abates freedoms taken for
granted. Connected only in
an equivalence of affective
events, frank commitment
absent without leave, free
to fly and flee as whimsy’s
fancy takes virtual license;
connected in a World sans
links, friends, family, of the
associations defining who
and what we see in images
of whom we think we are.
