teenagers with cellphones

after the cellphone was invented
the teenagers of the world evolved
in their left arm.
the skin between the left arm and the elbow merged together.
and now the left arm is this strange
device that has evolved to hold
the cellphone up against the ear.

teenager is a phase of life that gets broken in a ritual
right after graduation:
a Jewish Rabbi cuts it loose
and it flops bloody,
until the arm is rebuilt to hold an iPod.

that would be an intelligent design.
