Unexpected Murmur

digital deterritorialization

browsing through pictures

at least they exist in some form


leaning back

contraption on the lap

browsing through


experience mitigates aches

severity, overblown and misrepresented

nature has become irrelevant


mental reterritorialization

tired of words about words

people want images


not imagery

only thoughts

tired of poems about poems

  1. It can at times seem so overwhelming … absorbing and creating.

  2. Yep, we socialize through computers and prefer cat images to intellectual words. Kinda screwed up, isn’t it?

    Funny; I read this poem with a contraption on my lap. :-)

  4. ‘contraption on the lap’ – a very witty way to say, well, you know. that thing.

  5. Refreshing. I needed to read your poem. )
