LOST IN LCD LAND
(3/5/16)


it all
looks
so real

seems
so important

after all
money is made
and lost
based upon
what
is displayed

we worry
so much
over
what we see

a switch
seemingly solves
most
of the angst

a walk
outdoors

to experience
the trees

the lawns

the cars

the streets

things
of substance

but we know
what is reflected
on our screens
inside
makes all of this
human endeavor
possible out

we wish
it were not
so

we go back
into the office

sit
at our desks

alight
with the glow
of this modern
reality

still

we
very much

want to
smash
something
