Dear David Foster Wallace

Posted by on Nov 29, 2011 in 2011, Choken Word, Headline

As if this was the last thing I was to do. The last thing to ever see. Staring at this screen. Grasping for words of hope to leave you. To have something to lean on for me In case I wake up tomorrow. Another day, another sorrow. There is technology. There are miracles happening every […]

Mutating Words

Some things in life I won’t defend. I am a mutant. I’ve always been. Different. Not understanding why. To learn of others like me is to demystify How my life has unfolded. All the voices I heard growing up. They were put there for one reason. To make me want it more. To make me […]

Measuring the New

Measuring the New

Put it under a microscope and watch it grow. What is the view? Does the single-celled organism multiply and divide? Does it become a network we can use to communicate the politics we often despise. Can we watch it from another height? Wait ten years and see if it has become more. Will a survey […]

I am Carbon

I am Carbon

My mother is Hydrogen. My father is Helium. The maker of Carbon. Of which I am made from. Elements from the sky. Stars dying by and by. For billions of years I am. Indigo the color I know. The color from which my soul flows. I was born to change the world. I have known […]

It’s 2005 YU55

Look up in the sky. It’s not a bird. It’s not a plane. No, it’s a rock. Mouths drop. Pulses stopped. The size of of an aircraft carrier Buzzing by Mother Earth. Closer than the Moon. Is there enough room? Eyes fixed on the sky. It’s fast. It’s bright. It’s quite a site To see […]

The Human Compromise

The Human Compromise

This existence with all that it is. The barbed wire fences built and then destroyed. The tribes we nurture and then employ. I am surrounded by family. The ones who mean the most to me. My partner and my progeny. All of this is for them. All the doors I kick in and defend. All […]

The Penitent

The Penitent

In my cell pacing Eight by Ten feet of me. One toilet. One table. One bed. And me. These walls swallow mental capacity. As I try to breathe. I am a social animal Kept in this box. Taken out for one hour. Putting my hands in a slot. Hands locked. Walked down in a trot. […]

To See

A time capsule exists Injected into the palm of your hand All data needed to migrate From one life to another The best books ever written All memories and photos Compacted into Titanium Concrete Stone 20 ton blocks of Marble As large as the pyramids Smaller than an ant Mirrored daily in the clouds Embedded […]

War from Afaristan

War from Afaristan

Armed Predator drones flying above. Human emotions they know not of. Hunting targets to be blown apart. Continuing wars that politicians start. Bombing people like ants. Little blips on screens they scan. From refrigerator boxes orders are sent. Clicking, enjoying, sticking the fight. An extension of our American might. For Lunch spreading fire sauce on […]

A Happy Song

I am happy. I am happy. I take my pills and auto-sync With a world on the brink. I am happy. I am happy. I say this to not think About the poison that I drink. I am happy. I am happy. I watch sports and do not blink. If my team loses I will […]

Our Human Shores

Our Human Shores

Humans are at the center of design As we can sit here and recline. Life critical systems operate all around. They are hidden out of view and can’t be found. They produce the water we drink. They produce the electricity we use to help think. All prototyped by cross disciplinary teams. Created by engineers, scientists, […]

The one true God is dead

The one true God is dead. We shot him in the head and watched as he bled. Because he grew fear and hate. Because he watched us and did nothing to state That love is God is a word. A feeling that we all have but do not deserve. Because we have massacred our own people. […]

The Singularity

I have followed my friend Ken Vallario’s artwork for close to twenty years now.  Since we were Freshmen in college I knew of him.  Heard about him.  He was a legend.  He walked among 18 year olds as if he was touched by something much greater.  A man among children he seemed to be.  As […]

Fern Hill

Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green, The night above the dingle starry, Time let me hail and climb Golden in the heydays of his eyes, And honoured among wagons I was prince of the apple towns And once below […]

The Mental Picture

Imagine a network node of your consciousness Extended outward to all other nodes To the great upload. Forever creating and retrieving data. Flowing and dangling loosely like a tree in the weather. Limbs stretched outward and upward. Leaves bending and branches stretching in the river. The mental picture… This site has tentacles That reach into […]

Logocentric, frequent contributor–and at times, infrequent contributor–to globatron.org, died today in a fiery car crash outside Albuquerque, New Mexico.  According to fire rescue officials, Mr. centric turned west onto an eastbound one-way traffic lane and collided with a charter bus full of suicide bombers who were en route to Dallas, Texas.  There were no survivors in […]
