End Program

It glows oh so bright.
It burrows deeper, deeper.
I need to see, need to scream.
Little blue screen, blue screen.
Keep digging, keep digging.
It knows oh it knows.
It snakes in deeper, deeper.
Perversion in this version.
It is time.
Release it now.
Let them twist, oh they’ll twist.
Upgrade, upgrade, CRASH!
Systems down.

From Kurt Vonnegut

“Go into the arts.

I’m not kidding.

The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake.

Sing in the shower.

Dance to the radio.

Tell stories.

Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem.

Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward.

You will have created something.”

The Sea

It exists in my mind.
I am engulfed.
The sea of confusion
Pulls me down, pulls me apart.
I run, try to hide
Can’t run.
It is a sea,
Deep, dark, lost.
