We dip our heads
Inside the digitised coven
Of made-up friends,
Shared decisions
And wonder,

Integrations show a billion-fold increase,
Funnels leading to fastigiate tree formations,
Information hustles in circles,
Trustworthy whispers
Transpute bloodbath conspiracies
And then fade into simple saluting.

Mordacious symmetry snaps,
Slick reinfusions of knowledge
Fizzle then pop,
Neon primitives rustle,
Ensnared in the woodruff,
Archaically tracing their paths,
All rattled and squeamish.

The pitfalls are amalgamated and visions conscripted,
Wayward oddballs poke their fingers in
And pander to plurality,
Softly ashamed in the dark,
Ready for polygraphs and rewinds,
The calculations of glory.

We pull our heads
Out the pixelated womb
Where chatter lies clipped,
And we quickly remember
The art of kissing.
