Drop Out, Drop In...

Still around...
...just WICKEDLY BUSY and will resume with regularly scheduled programming very soon.

In the meantime, since Richard was so kind to request more poetry, this one is from August, 1992 and was written for someone also named Richard. It's one of my favorites.

Wired

wired
strung up
and strung out
life hangs tenouosly
above the streets and below them
through big cities and small towns
along open fields
across a nation

high
on poles
beamed up
on microwaves
to far away places
my life's blood courses
through a fiber optics network
words pulsate
like bread and water
offering sustainance
through these vital connections

reach out
reach out and touch someone

long distance is the next best thing to being there

but it's not
being there

Richard's not the only one who likes poetry :P And I really like these last few pics you've put up too...

Thank you for obliging the request. This one has a nice cadence and technology is on of my favorite themes, I think many poets fear technology has a cold imagery, but I think you play it out nicely.
