The clatter of the keys
Carries the longing heart
Friends are reconnected
Even as they’re far apart
What joy to bridge the gap
When distant we must be
What miracle this odd machine
With the clatter of its keys
No substitute for contact
Better handshakes or a hug
But in the in-between time
It serves us well enough
