Treasure Island

Rahman Henry

(14 January 1970 / Natore, Bangladesh.)

It's ringing the cellphone

It's ringing the cellphone, continuous
Sound neutral, unconcerned the kitchen is

It's ringing the cellphone, continuous
The road is surrounded by Gold-rain-trees, a private car
Pharmacist is on the way home, driving

It's ringing the cellphone, continuous
Ears are engaged with Tagore songs, fingers with Facebook;

It's ringing the cellphone, continuous
Cellphone: a luxurious misinvention of this century

It's ringing the cellphone, continous
Congrats! Congrats!

It's ringing the cellphone, continuous, and stops
At the distance of a light years, there is a disappointed sigh

    Ha-ha! Cellphone: 'a luxurious misinvention of this century' I couldn't have said that any better myself and I totally agree. hence why I don't own a phone period. Great piece on how annoying they are. (Report) Reply
