We Pray to Algorithms

instead of the sun

the first morning screen light

glows under fingertips

as birds trill their song to the dawn

“Stay stay welcome stay!”

Our dopamine deprived minds bend over searching for

“likes” “followers”

At sunset sea gulls flock to the same spot

face the waves in silence

puffed chests absorb the last sun rays

honoring its descent

into the horizon.
