and marooned behind inadequate screens
await former days
and absent glitching in say.
eyes stained: debilitated red
with dilly- dally chained to bed.
and what to find?
how can one comprehend?
when inhibited voices send.
this institution is rapid pace
we aren’t tying lace
but how can they care about dreams…
After all, vision is by screen.
