ancient civilizations

the children ate in silence while mom whittled away the hours on her phone—

 

what were they thinking? of the banter between the people at the next table?

 

that face-to-face conversation was a foreign object in the food court in late

 

August, a week before the start of school, when mom could go back to work

 

and kids to learning history lessons such as the one we’re living through now?
