Re: After I Traded My Voice Box by April Salzano Poem

This is a complicated little poem and I'm far from sure I understand it. Clearly part of it calls (pun!?) back to mobile phone plans. But I got a bit lost whether it referred to phones themselves at "voice boxes". For some reason I keep thinking of those voice synth boxes used by people who have had throat operations!

Sounds to me like it has to do with text-messaging (the thumb references). Beyond that, I can't be certain.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?
