She pined for the days
when people were more sophisticated
than their technology,
yet she loved the technology
that allowed her to watch the movies made
during those days before
that technology had come to be.
Because she gave respect
without it having to be earned first,
she found that she often received it.
When someone lost her respect,
she did not disrespect them,
left them to their own electronic devices.
She scrolled down her friend list,
unfriending those she had never known,
but who had been watching her life
more than she ever knew.
