Breakfast with Statues

Have we really become more connected

Or have we drifted further into ourselves?

An ostentatious need to prove we are rich in goods and bads and bodies

Reduces our flesh to plastic

Until we, too, stand like proud mannequins in a window

Nameless and faceless in person,

But a celebrity when wrapped in the paper-thin, intangible web

Warmed by the acquaintance of praise

And fed by pictures of colored plates in countries halfway around the world

To prove we are rich in goods and bads and bodies

As we dine alone at full tables
