What power these zeros and ones
Have bestowed, to make us heroes or huns
In the moments while we wait
– connected to our clouds – for email.
Touching all these things so very far away.

From so many nothings and somethings,
We know everything – trumping
Memory and desire with
Search results so gratifying.

Stick a pin in it:
get comment number 1
we’ve had so much fun:
we’re not done.
