It's Like Omg

My children
use their thumbs
to converse with
invisible people.

They speak
a language
with no words,
a shorthand
of the hands.

I try using
my voice to
interrupt them,

Yet they contin-
ue wandering
in a place
with no sound,

Where thoughts
become reflexes,
and God exists
as a single letter.
