Lived out loud by Rupert M. Loydell

LIVED

OUT LOUD

much too many
no privacy no quiet
no time for being alone
in taken out-of-date news
borrowed lives lived out loud
and in view no privacy no quiet
the moment because no-one can
because no time for peace or view
smartphones capturing the moment
no endless flicker of non-experience
haughtiness too many lives out loud
broadcast and live out loud too much
can remember smartphones capturing
ignored in the cloud forgotten before
an endless flicker of non-experience
remember anymore all we can do is
forgotten before they were photos
digital share the moment no-one
too much haughtiness too many
borrowed lives lived out loud
were anymore all we can do
no time for peace or view
taken out-of-date news
too much too many
lived out loud
out lived
loud
