and what? what?
what will happen next?
perhaps the sun will blow out
a baby planet. maybe an itinerant space-god
will stop by to enlighten and/or devour us.
some random rainforest-creature sex act
may spawn a relentless new spieces of carnivore.
i just dont know. but i am sure
that a new science is en route. think about it:
all the traffic, networks, frequencies,
bar-codes, computer chips, surveillance cameras,
chemicals, tumors, dysfunctions,
bad strangers, politicians, secret agendas,
flesh eating microbes, coital viruses,
so much, so fast, word after word,
image after image, life after life
after life. one must stay up all night
every night to figure the whole thing out-
to really come to grips with it.
to not be left behind.
to not feel so stupid.
so helpless.
and so alone.

I have to admit, I'm getting a Charles Bukowski buzz out of this piece...
