Totem Triptych Competition

The competition is now closed but this was a really cool idea. There was a call for poets and writers to submit their interpertation of these wonderful triptychs. This one is my favorite. Here's the poem that goes with it as well. Enjoy!

Virtual Communication

Keyboard types on a bed of nails
To the rhythmic dance of seven emails.
Email; voice mail; chain mail, click.
Snails mail; proxy mail; virtually every trick.
Viruses; Screen dumps; bytes and bits -
Learn your sign language from a virtual kit.
Clone yourself; emboss yourself, then duplicate your image.
It’s communication Jim, but not as we know it.
