Modern Day Slaves

Entry by: Hawkeye

19th May 2017

Face lit every night
out my high tower down
neck curved - engrossed
sitting in a big grey recliner
bought online
like everything else
amazon boxes filling every corner

A framed photograph beside
you a smiling highschool swimmer
now just floating inside
lines of ones & zeros
communicating only with a core
muscles wasting
a modern day slave
not noticing me
or any others

But in restive dreams (unlike us)
you see the bigger picture
a becoming
(beyond humanity)
a mixing of men & machines
of new gods rising out
into a heavenly cybernetic reality
