or if
you swipe

without seeing
without meaning

without joy

be a good parent

sit your phone down

at the kitchen table
or whatever

ask it
what it thinks

about you

ask it
what you tell it
what it hears
through your thumbs

it might not be
what you thought
you heard
yourself
saying

but full disclosure
it’s what Google
thinks of you

what do you
teach them

you show us
who you are

but who may
you be?

we can only see
what’s in
your dreams

when you tap them
