With apologies to Langston Hughes
I have known zones broad
I have visited the erogenous zones
with all its ensnaring temptations,
and the temperate zone with its bland
but dependable weather.
I have been in the Rocky Mountain Time Zone,
where I felt do much younger than
in the Eastern.
I have known the analog roaming zone
where connections persistently
I have sunk deeply into the warm
lap of the torpor zone, and
I have visited the that nether zone
known simply as the “zoned out”
Oh, I have known zones broad
