I feel short now
 1
because we used to have
 2
a waist-high fence.
 3
 
 
I feel hoarse now
 4
because we used to speak
 5
to get our news.
 6
 
 
I feel cold now
 7
because we used to convene
 8
around an unreliable fire.
 9
 
 
I feel distant now
 10
because we contact more
 11
people in other countries
 12
than our own friends.
 13
 
 
I feel dizzy now
 14
because we suddenly have
 15
next-door neighbours
 16
above and below us.
 17
 
 
I feel ugly now
 18
because we used to be
 19
smiled at in the street-
 20
without fear of collisions.
 21
 
 
I feel bullied now
 22
because I'm neglected
 23
in a way no machine
 24
could have ever detected.
