Poetry: Look Up

Never before has the world been so interconnected.  Never before have we, as a culture, been so isolated.  There are a multitude of platforms to connect, stay in touch, and talk to people. And, yet all of these so-called social networks are distracting us from our real lives.  Slam poet Gary Turk mourns the loss of a generation in his powerful new poem "Look Up."

"We're a generation of idiots. Smartphones and dumb people."
