Computer City

(Painting finished property of Camile McGregor, December 27, 2017, acrylic)

City streets 

 

The suit and tie place

Money hungry smiles

Talking to our inter-space

That is what’s worthwhile

 

Shiny shoes in the rain

Walls built of rust

Umbrella held of shame

Stop this, we must

 

We are connected

Surrounded, yet alone,

Our nature’s infected

up to our jawbone

 

We are addicted

To computer screens

We are afflicted 

With internet dopamine

 

We are empty

streets of disunity

crowded with blame

 

in this place

we called community

we must stop this game

 

Faces of

blank welcomes, 

and frozen shoulders,

never free

 

a briefcase

of city venom

You call this empathy?

 

We are connected

Surrounded, yet alone,

Our nature’s infected

up to our jawbone

 

We are addicted

To computer screens

We are afflicted 

With internet dopamine
