Sunday Poem: “The Analogy”


Imagine a room

full of people.


Perfect venue to meet,




You could make friends,

pitch for a job,

find love.


Social media is that place

—without a room,

without people.


(Editor’s note: poet Shai Ben-Shalom, an Israeli-born biologist, examines current events in the Blacklock’s tradition each and every Sunday)
