to find your way in this world

one bird(lost migrations
newsreaders in suits with the sound OFF
all the sounds turned DOWN(yet still this ticking pulse
to dedicate time to thought.more than meditation
banks of images foreclose memories.repossess time and space
you know there is no REWIND.Who programs videos?
Digital children (islands of white earphones
Most movies pre-virtual were cigarettes/slow black and white smoke
now conversation includes classic distancing
only loneliness can claim you now.illusion aloneness Imperialism of One..
you see it is happening now in Sudan and Syria,in Austin and Alabama
Republican warders setting rules for imaginary prisoners
Foreigners censored like Native American Reservations
White noise.Black holes.Between these-i dream with Adrienne Rich-
"The Dream Of a Common Language"
