The artificiality of zoom meetings is staggering. People dress from the waist up and sit in front of electronically generated backdrops. All is devoid of clutter scent and intimacy; the filter is emotionless!




Zoom

Another painful zoom meeting

Is there no lurid third dimension 

This  depthless video bleating

Will it ever replace the elation

Of touch and intimacy begging

To be released from flatscreen

Animates immersed in flaunting

Artificiality of the ever preen

Falsified pixilated radiating

Background nonchalance 

not of fact and honorable

mismatched cluttered manse

But CinemaScope superficial

Nicely written, Joe, but, to tell you the truth, touching and intimacy rarely elate me, so distancing hasn't bothered me.

I miss the coffee and cookies at my meetings. And of course the hugs.
