Does the Tunnel of Love exist anymore? (a poem)

I was watching an episode of Get Smart yesterday, in which 86 and 99 are going through a Tunnel of Love in a KAOS-operated amusement park…

I thought
the boats would have been junked years ago
the water drained
the building boarded up
once the carnival closed

The world is different now
we go screen to screen
instead of hand in hand
Connection is a click
instead of a touch

Closeness is only a state of mind
