Easier to die with current tech

Maybe social media 
makes it easier
to let go of everything
when we die.

Instead of having 
deep, physical
evolutionary bonds
with special people,
we have 
only know 
through some 
tiny avatar
lost in 
a sea of chat.

When you die
it'll be like 
you were never
in the first place.

Take me away

Nicely done, Michael.
You made me laugh when I came to the final stanza of the first poem.
The drawing was great: loved how you made the complex so simple, where the nuances of colors are distant in a world of strict dualities.
Thank you for sharing.
