Thirty Days of Poetry Challenge(Day Four(2012))

The long days as a mirage
A miraculous malfunction of visual membranes
tamed by angelic network security geeks
afraid of what the brain could see
being more than what the mind could perceive with accuracy
you’re their material objective
the dream, not of only throw away luxuries
but removal of being reduced to a resume
not the currency but the standard
that dictates where the first world hides its debts
the illusion of me only confirms their disillusionment of you
the carrot that can never be bitten
but still chased as rodents round corners in the capitalist maze
the inspiration I am is of what is truly within them
the determination they spend in searching the world for you
would be better served valuing the end by the ends…
