love, modern

it was love,
the modern version:
abridged and
unpunctuated,
full of acronyms
and emoticons.
her ceaseless longing for
the ring buzz ping of
his digital caress,
her own fingers
smudging the screen
with impatient swipes
as she tried to satiate
palpable desire
with the solitary flicker
of the cursor
before she reached
her data plan limits
