Replacing now
Bone with bar
Skin with sheath
Heart’s daily death with a droid

Electronic love
An absence of like
Is all that exists
Amidst overhead LED light

Otherworld lips
Underworld talk
Virtual touch
Downloaded now


On the surface there’s shine 
Polished and forged
So as to showcase
A most lovable lie

Their accolades, yours
As my ears cringe 

For there is that shallow, shallow heart
Dulled early 
Tilled over
By one finely chiseled intellect

That what fear, I fear to wonder
They can never hear
