Scratches, relentless air bubbles,
smudges or permanent damage
precluded clear visibility for its user.
And we, like his phone, sometimes need
our outer layer peeled off; the scratches, smudges,
signs of wear, removed.
We hope someone will come along to help us
see clearly again, but until then
we read our lives through hazy
plastic; communication filtered through experience.
