The Miracle Of Electronics

The Miracle of Electronics

 

Thousands read

And take my lead.

Thousands more

Abhor my store

Of verse and views,

Eschew or skew my prose.

A miracle

That pleases those

Who love a life impartial.

One Password Is Enough

As paranoiac as the next one –

Secrets gone –

Well, none;

Society:

They’re watching (not exactly, but

We’re traceable – each bit you print.

You get my point)

There’s nothing on my laptop

You can’t see: I have no see-crets.

With veracity, simplicity.

I haven’t got a hundred passwords.

More than one would make me crazy.

What have I worth curd or turd?

Nonetheless, I think, ‘what if…’

What if I wrote this phrase,

That? Words sensitive

To do

With points of view:

Sex, crucifix,

Eugenics, ethics,

Civics, politics;

That state of states,

The ticking bombs ,

Both metaphoric and for real?

Thoughts reveal, so would one be

In trouble?

That is why I am intent

On never having secrets I can’t print

Or you would steal.

My Three Loves: Silly Reflections Of A Serious Mind

My Three Loves: Silly Reflections Of A Serious Mind

 

Three loves: one human, two machines.

Two nameless helpmates

And one named.

(I’m so ashamed.

I hope that in a pinch

I do remember which is which).

My dear who breathes but isn’t here

To see these words, I do so love you.

Feel secure.

You’re number one. But number two

These days, sits here

Before my eyes,

Upon my thighs,

Relation intimate.

Number three:

Entirety in music,

With its limitation only me,

Sits waiting, to be turned on

When I’m hot.

My keyboard and my laptop are not

You,

But they’ve become my heart,

A part

Of art,

A channel for the good and true,

Reflecting phases in the ways-es

Human beings cannot do.

(Just so

That you know

You’re not forsaken.)

Click Follow 6.27.2014

Click Follow

 

I’ve new ideas about

How to get out

My stuff.

(Get my stuff out?)

It seems it’s not enough

To write and publish.

I feel foolish

Begging you

To

Click a little ink-black cross

That’s followed by the designation

Follow (it sounds shallow, hollow)

But, it seems the little cross

Is boss!

Not vanity,

This wish to be read and enjoyed,

Not popularity;

Just read. We are

Communicating puppets buoyed

By wishes inexplicable.

So click.

It isn’t difficult.

Remarkable Reality 6.20.2014

Remarkable Reality

 

A button, key

To tuck away reality

That could have been.

You video your playing

Filled with errors, notes you never

Would perform if there were

People present.

You delete.

Reality has been.

But you can hit the button,

Run away, correct, pretend

It never happened.

No one saw/need see

Until you’re letter free:

Faultless, flawless, seamless,

Your reality recorded and erased,

The moment secret in its weakness

While your brain’s knows three:

Before, an after

Or a chosen never.

Delete. Delight.

Repeat till ripe

To reap a new reality,

The old, once known

Paused, gone.

Word Of Mouth (the world’s best marketing device) 2014

As a published poet, poetry being the hardest to market, to get read, I was thinking…BUT you must not be in a hurray, and you may not have underlying motives, use underhanded means.

Word Of Mouth

(the world’s best marketing device)

 

When Streisand first appeared in town,

Word went around, the local buzz

A telegraph: a chain reaction.

Word of mouth crossed New York City,

Gaining speed; the perfect path.

Singing her extraordinary

Repertoire,

A new voice incompar-able,

Impossible to liken

with the biggest star.

The street was lined,

All boroughs meeting in the Village.

North to South, the mouth

The best, most honest

Instrument

To share whatever art and drive

You have to give.
