We should tell
all our children
when they’re asking
Siri about courage
that they will not find it there

Even Alexa
will not know
because Google hasn’t told her
as there are things
that elude such bots

That the bravest
thing to do
is to put your phone away
look someone in the eye
and dare to truly, deeply love.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
