“The two thumbs are skipping autocorrect salsa practice”

from when my lecturer asked us to go for a day without the net and our usual devices

The two thumbs are
skipping autocorrect salsa practice at The Screen
to help their friend the hand hike down
to the bottom of a Paper Page,
armed with only a Kilometrico walking stick. The difference
is like crossing a street and a stream. The wrist aches,
out of breath, loses
a few thoughts
slow dancing at
the speed of handwriting
circling paper-tree shade.

The survivors of saturation
tornado their cards over noise with skill,
but I hear the game-changers let the best cards
beat quietly over their hearts still.
