 — stateofmind

i dont understand the line breaks.

our eyes are glued
to the screen
(but our thoughts
are glued to the spot
where our elbows are
)(touching).

and you dont need to spell it out in the title at all!
(not sure what to call it, but spelling it out ruins it.)
got to go see your others now!

Thats beaming.
 — Infrangible

The line breaks bother me.  If this was my poem (and I know it's not, so feel free to completely ignore me) I would break it something like this:

Our eyes
are glued to the screen,
but our thoughts
are glued to the spot
where our elbows are
touching.

Or something along those lines.  But then, I would also capitalize it and put a period at the end.
A nice capture of a moment we've all been through.
Cute job.
