Text as communication

We use the word “text” in many forms from referring to a book for a course with copious amounts of information to referring to “text” as a message sent between individuals.

I found these two SMS poems on a site by Andrew Wilson.

We type a conversation
that travels fast enough
for one word answers, jokes
to and fro down the wire
flapping outside my window.

We’re not quite tuned
to each other’s English
need to read faces
so 2 make d8s
we txt not fone
written words
2 b sure we’re understood.
