Potential Restrained - Poem by Jack Dylan

Echoing observations
Boiled to insults
Heed your opinion
Stop projecting results

Assumptions of leading
Energies you know
Just follow us
And we’ll all help you grow

Rain off my back
Filling an ocean
Water swells deeper
Masking the notion

Capacitors fill
Aimed at creation
Ending a streak
Of immortal devastation

Out of the wreckage
Leaks powers of implosion
Scavenged by souls
With much less confusion

Division of ego and soul
One for the white, another in black
Careful what you wish for
‘Cause you don’t know Jack

Vicarious sloth
Pulling my stings
Tempting, taunting and teasing
I doubt you’ll find my teeth quite so appeasing

    This is a turbulent and wonderful poem. I detect echos of computer programming - do you do that? Binary, capacitors, several other clues. Your biograpy also mentions how your are maticulous (sp? ! ! !) - characteristic of the craft. Or are you just crafty? I loved this. I'll have to return, hoping to absorb even more meaning.
