Jagged Thought #172: Crash! Poetry lost in the Digital Sea


 

My words.
Stolen.
They weren’t that good
Anyway.

Lamenting about
Lack
Of this and that.

Putting in rhythm
And syntax.

Gone.
Computer Crashed.

I have sleep in my eyes.
I have a rotten pear on my desk.
I have a sleeping wife.
I guess. I need to get some rest.

Frozen.
Cold.
My poem.
Gone.

Lost in a digital cave.
Lost in a digital sea.
Lost between binary code.
X’s and O’s

My Facebook,
And my Twitter feed.
