Pixel Paradox - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Patterns form as piece by jigsaw piece
Inventions flash across flat mobile screen,
Xpress intrinsic profile, sensed not seen, -
Expressing change now ready for release.
LEDs [b]link then sink as stimulations cease.
Pregnant shadows presage red, blue, green,
As inset windows somewhere in between
Real and unreal, retain some skein, increase
Add on, plug in, cross-pollinate, police
Developments online. What may this mean?
One tremor more, core shakes - tsunami scene.
Xtensive, change seethes, straining surface peace,
assumptions questions, old world sweeps away.
Another rises, chained or free? Who’ll say?

Pixel Paradox

Patterns form as piece by jigsaw piece
Inventions flash across a fuzzy screen,
Xtract a nano profil, sensed not seen, -
Endless change is ready for release.
Lights [b]link then sink as surges soon decrease.
Pregnant shadows presage red, blue, green,
As inset windows somewhere in between
R eal, unreal, retain some skein, increase
Add on, plug in, cross-pollinate, police
Developments online. What does this mean?
One tremor more, core shakes, - tsunami scene.
Xcessive change stored 'neath screen's surface fleece
will sweep away an old society,
assumptions challenging, - to chain or free?


(27 August 1999/Acrostic Sonnet PIXEL PARADOX Poem)
