The Devil’s Screen

Prophetic or pathetic,
     the reader's eyes

Your iPhone commands yours,
     a siren setting the
          innocent trap. 

But you will lose your way
     and the mist will roll it in
          then finally come back
               to your Barbie
               house smeared with
               feces and ash,
          murder and treason:

Your dog's dead !
     The app needed an update,
          he never was fed …
     at least he tried to run away
to try chase squirrels and play. 

Your son died!
     He lost his kill-streak
          and never respawned. 
     Too bad he had no service
and you had to find out yesterday. 

Look at your wife !!
     She choked on Franz Cab vom
          while sleeping to
               Kardashian re-runs. 
          You must be proud,
     she tried to clean it up
with ripped pages from an unopened book. 

And you and you and you …
     you're justifying that thumb-play?
          You're not 36 like your Facebook page. 
     and you've got small hands and
          can only feast in McNuggets. 

     I snarl at them, you smirk at
          them then look
               back down
          at the Devil's Screen. 

And you feel serene
     toting three clicks
               and scrolling
          the I finite scriptures
                    of your friends. 

Who is the messiah now?

You must've taken one up by now.
