Treasure Island

Cybertime


Manic chic in modern style.
Of self-regarding wit and guile.
Hackers shriek and move the file,
with iconoclastic cues.

No metronome to count the chime,
in cyberspace and cybertime.
No pendulum or arc to trace,
in cybertime and cyberspace.

Pop-ups peak; the willful child,
opens windows to weathers' wild.
And havoc follows, unreconciled
to cyberplastic glues.

Links that seek, addressed and dialed.
Secrets taken, scans compiled.
The private self in extinct denial,
my cyberspastic blues.

Cybertime and cyberspace.
The real and virtual interface.
Cyberlie and cybertruth.
The cyber shredding of the proof.

Cyberspace and cybertime.
Compressed in quantum worlds sublime.
Cyber lives as cyber dies,
expressed in random number size.

Cybertime and cyberspace.
Do we live in a state of grace?
Cyberlove and cyberhate.
We pledge our troth to cyberfate.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
