Sparks
Martin Bush

Press button
discard cares
with glass
with copper
with plastic
hurry wait.

sparks on wire
coders dream
in flesh
in color
in light
endless stream.

rest logic
shed wisdom
now fans
now colors
now sounds
pull us in.

falling down
slouching down
in chair
in life
in thought
glowing screens.

fingers tap
thoughts do flow
but weak
but flat
but slow
torpor grows.

dancing world
docile feet
so sad
so low
so limp
merry mask.

perfect pixels
empty eyes
of him
of her
of all
sever mind.

Empty now
let's be done
stop it
close it
drop it
power off.
