KAFKA KARMA
(4/30/17)

computers
everywhere
are linking

talking

exchanging

every little bit
of information
about us

nothing
is hidden

nothing
is ever
finally resolved

as newer
networks
harvest
our history

we are subject
to double

triple

many multiples
of jeopardy

no sin
unturned

no sin
completely
forgiven

our continual
acts
of virtual
compliance
are noted

then
forgotten

until the next
encryption
exhumes
our transgressions

beginning
our trials

our punishments
all over
again

perpetual
defendants
we await
in the courtroom
of The Cloud

as revolving
judges

juries

arrive
at differing
digital verdicts
for our singular
crimes

we accept

reaccept

our sentences

happy
to contribute
to the technology
of contrition

ad infinitum
