Soulful machines: Cell Phones

Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?

I’m lost without my cell phone,

A machine that is an extension,

Of myself,

I can even talk on the ‘throne’.

What a wonderful invention,

A single ring gets my attention,

Does it have a soul?

It must have,

Without it, I’m hard to console.
