a humming buzz, global solitude among twittering
drowning out all matter of witty or mundane internet musings
muffled nothingness, routed declarations of
unconnected rhetoric
tapping keys of personality, crafting images and feelings

aphids, cooties, moths, all matter of vermin descend
electrified kin severed by server interrupts
backbone broken and crippled
communal vacant lots of disconnectedness
the razor edge of exile
waiting for repair, restore, reboot proxy selves
the wired, wireless connection then
rinsed, repeated
