in the early days of

in the early days of
teleportation, people flocked
in and out of
cities, towns, endangered
ecosystems, any
place they could
not even six months
in, people began
to make up new and old
excuses for why they
couldn’t drop in on
loved ones, spend any
more time than before
teleportation – tractor-beam
malfunction, severed spatial
eliminator widgets, quantum
dissociation syndrome,
the cost, work, dog duties.
the excuses couldn’t
have imagined better
champions, we can
stop imagining teleportation
