Not the Time

This is not the time, not when we’re alone
like this, for notification alerts on your iPhone.

Others wouldn’t mind. It’s just the way I am —
this is not the time to be posting to Instagram.

I know it sounds jealous, ugly, even bitter —
this is not the time for hashtagging on Twitter.

Others wouldn’t care. It’s just a hangup of mine —
this is not the time to be on your Facebook timeline.

I know it sounds like I’m a spoiled little brat —
this is not the time for socializing on Snapchat.

Others wouldn’t fuss. But as long as we’re in bed,
this is not the time to be getting your e-mail read.

Excuse my selfishness, sorry I have to ask —
when we’re making love, please don’t multitask.

    Have you left an exception open, more or less?
    — Never is not the time to peek at your WordPress!

    is not the time to be anything but unplugged!
