the age of digital scribblers

a big white rectangle
shining luminous lobotomy
open up and say ahhhh shit!
did I get you?

what? you’re still here?
I’ll fill you up with little
black picket lines
stick-men of syllabicity
they’ll fight for me

they’ll blacken your bright
beaming bombast
with little slashes
lacerating your pale petulance
until you’re scarred with
20/20 hindsight

So What?

So What?

what you telling me?

you be felon see

what’s it gonna be?

you see the meaning in the rhyme?

you wasting my time?

distract me

interact w/me

counterattack me

don’t be slack w/me

I want your best

not like the rest

you uninspired?

feeling wired?

wanna be it?

don’t give me no shit

I seen what you say

don’t have to be this way

show me something new

no matter taboo

but it better be you

it’s what I desire

mind back in the fire


you can compete

try looking in deep

I come for magic not sleep
