Other-Worldly Icons

There’s more to life than a
nice new mobile phone he
observed, no matter what
it features. You say in your
defence there is a World in
it – the one preferred to
ordinary reality. Sure, I agree –
seen fashionably, an essential
compendium of all the trendy
things needed for the life you
lead. The key is just how far to
bend actuality to fit your view
of it; but then, how do you shrink
other-worldly icons who’s sheer
bulk impedes utility?

Easily you say, just enough to fit
into a chic designer pocket...!
