Thaw

 
you have to ask yourself. . .

in what way has the Internet improved the world?

the ability to say anything that
 

comes to mind

when it comes to mind

–in the heat of anger

–the knee-jerk of retaliation

–the flush of infatuation

to people you’ll never meet?

people lacking face

–so there’s no losing it—

and even vegans cannabilize faceless folk in

“good” conscience

possessed of a voice

that screams

(and echoes)

(and parrots)

soundlessly

typing, typing, typing

–in stereo

in a world where no one listens

everyone eavesdrops

the deafened muting

of all that matters

–unheard.
