Attention Currency – January 2019

Attention Currency

attention currency
grips us all
at long last
a virtual world has become a common call
at long last
someone has us in their sights
feeling sad
well, there is always a like
do not want to talk about it?
the comments,
will fill your page
society has come of age

attention currency
immediate and it is new
a voice that reaches out
but tell me,
what is it all about?
do people long
for a meaningful embrace
a talked about hug
we live out narratives
it has become the most modern drug
attention currency
