In and Out of Cyber Time
Dr. Ralph Monday

It's all in the computer now,
cybernetic musings, anonymous

Metaphysics discarded, eternity
disbanded. Binaries are the
one-eyed king, biversity
on every swiveled screen.

Orpheus dismembered,
machines assembled,
no one notices how they wobble.

Thoroughly decentered the
New mind celebrates
history's extinction.

There are no snow covered hemlocks
only pixels proclaiming
the death of language.

Blood becomes oil,
veins transmuted into optic coils,
heart a humming CPU,
the metal skin
of a gold circuit plated mind,
virtual caress in the dark,
lit only as long as the
purring generators twirl.
