Electric Sleep

everyone in the room
is clapping their hands
but no one can hear a sound
it’s always the same filigree ideas
swirling, and swirling around

communication
doesn’t have to be brazen
afterall, it’s just a whole lot of talk
and early every morning, there are less and less of us
taking walks

because who needs to travel
when everywhere
is right there inside your computer screen
sometimes the world is not a pretty place
as stationary as it seems

my keys are in pain from screaming out loud
i’d give it a glass of water
but I’m afraid it might drown

so
d r o w n

submerge all alerts and message boards
commit a mass murder of circuits instead
clip all of the wires inside of our cells
and drag ourselves upstairs
and straight back
to bed

half awake and somewhere else
i couldn’t drive so learned to talk
a thousand miles has got me
jailed for life
a time well-spent sharpening tools

but my lungs
my tongue
had never made much sense
a plot too smug to pull the plug
and i’m learning to outwit my youth
for a colder audience
