Zagar and Evans

We are
a chain gang.
the Internet
our uncommon bond
linking us one by one
–even when you don’t click–
to a global database
masquerading as
an interesting diversion

 
Did I say interesting?
make that:
invasive
color that:
empirical
rephrase that:
insidious

 
instructor
barking out
CMDs
and insisting on
CTRL
of every, every
goose step forward
unseen feet
knotted
to hangdog heads
take
–tripping
misstepping
not noticing
enthralled by
subliminal suggestion
of
a world that doesn’t exist
–doesn’t pass the tactile test
(olfactory either)
but
does move merch.

 
Deemed better for us
than actual interaction, let’s
remember:
there is power in numbers
but weakness in division
which,
link by link
we are.
