~

age of real-time, age of virtual faces,
age of a binary storm's surge spilling
over imagination's flood wall to drown
imperfection in unattainable images of
flawed mortality rebooted into a dream
of perfect self-referential reflection

here is the shadow of a forgotten body
singing i'n a fugue of clicking fingers:
a child, lost in the new meme's parade,
holds the broken toy other people told
him was a life in the digital eternity
where he'd never face lonely's sorrows 
 
all the old has become a table where a 
near future eats the heart of the past

~
"age of real-time," a sonnet: published under the terms of CPOPL (Code Project Open Poetic License) © 2019, Bill Woodruff

after writing this, I realized it "resonates" for me with lines from William Blake in "The Four Zoas: Night the Eighth:" “All futurity seems teeming with endless destruction never to be repelled; Desperate remorse swallows the present in a quenchless rage.”

«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
