    Techno Morph

    Techno Morph........ (by ~Sophia~)

    We’re not used to living in a skybox.

    My peculiar little dog (who’s recently begun
    impersonating a glass-eyed bearskin rug)

    is programmed to skip over tracks three,
    seven and nine - no one listens to
    an entire serialized CD anyway.

    The blackberry buzzes. It’s Gabriel laughing
    “but it’s a dry heat” as if that’s a good thing.

    One of my chapped eyes blinks repeatedly, the other
    swells with pebbles - no it’s more of a dry heave I think...

    a dreary sacramental toast - everybody limbo!
    obviously, God had a sec sense of humor when he
    dragged his scorching tongue across this inflamed
    land. Maybe it’s

    a Pilate study to see how long I can lip-sync
    a lollipop hymn out the side of my mouth
    before crossing over Hoover’s Dam
    - damn

    (sticky to self: Get lip gloss, lipstick, lip balm)
    Well, I’ve gotta run now, thanks for calling.

    Hello, Sophia, nice to meet you

    I really enjoyed this, the strange rhythm that you have. You've kind of rapped it out, yet it still has a flowing feel. Very interesting.

    I love the idea of "lip-syncing a lollipop hymn"...it's just a very beautiful sounding thing!

    Thank you for sharing

    I love the free association within the poem. It makes me think of a baby's point-of-view; observing everything, the slight details. It has a sort of non-linear structure to it, where things are left open-ended, then reappear by the end of the poem.

    Thanks Daniel! I wrote it in the way an average day goes, filled with distractions (especially by cell phones, text messages, pins, etc).
