Electronic Vampires

A spark
Leaps across a synapse
Then another
Then another
And another

My arm moves
My hand moves
My fingers tap
Tap, tap-tap, tap
On my phone,
TV remote

Since when has my
Vital electricity
Belonged to these devices?
An IV drip to drop into
A pool of contented oblivation?

I think I will go for a walk
Right after this next video.
