EXIGENT CONTINGENCIES
(7/3/15)


first
go the
phones

all
of the insane
calls

texts

messages

then
the internet

an ether world
of misinformation
and innuendo

then
TVs

reflecting
a wonderland
of humankind's
basest
fantasies

once
the noise
has settled
we begin to hear
the fundamental frequencies
of our more elemental
anthems

a different
soundtrack
soon accompanies
our lives

a truer
tune
with more meaningful
lyrics

others will
say
that we
are cut off

disconnected

they will worry
that we have
no recourse
in case
of emergencies

they do
not
understand
that extreme
circumstances
of reality
are what
we seek

for without
the satisfaction
of those solutions
found
in solitude

found
in silence

we could
never know
the rhythm
or our souls
