crumbled and rolled

Camera-less security, eyeless socket,
Made light of Tripwire’s proving ground
a mechanical maven, potato-bound,
Confined to a mute girl’s pocket,

Plugged in to our own devices-
Those irresistible, scintillant vices
Manipulated by our own desires
With even desire itself for hire,

Creatively constrained
Yet sufficiently entertained
Like mice confined
In our maze-like minds

In the end our souls from bodily homes were evicted,
So it ends face-down in ice, as Frost predicted.
