The "is"of "IS!"

"What is -is"-and this
applies to all and every and each
We need what we most give-beam
when our batteries weaken
Freak ,flicker,fake out
when the glowing gets tough
soft centered chocolates sweetest-
hard candy a drug of addiction

Our Grand Father Depression
Our father Post-War Baby Boom
Our sibling 60's/our living through
Reaganomics/Nerd Computerism
Gadget Children and Virtual 3D life
with plastic glasses and earphones attached
(we are the children of the corn
fed ethanol hybrid cars

now age.Grey hairs.Recycled loves
Trails of blood .Sacrifice.Learning
not earning.Books in the fire.Texting machines
"Just give me a fax(facts)machine!"

i dream headlines
in a new ear.
