Paper Plane
Folded
Your trajectory
Was not good
For as soon as you were launched
Were you soon crushed into yourself
On landing

as Bertolt Brecht suggested in "The Solution":

The Secretary of the Writers' Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

TURBO GIRL (cyberpunk)

She's small
streetsmart
over-cool
like at times
shes turbo
make any man
a fool
leave him standing
tranced at the lights
shes down the street
seperating the fights
her eyes are driven
green at times
slicked back and silver
her dress thin lines
I had her once
upon an unfortunate
time
made me quiver
lose my mind
intercooler
chipped set
and smaller
faster
cleaner
efficient
and meaner.

the mainstream river
the moat to the castle
wall of fog
beyond which you cannot see
aligning your faculties to those of the program
do you walk in step to a beat of power's making

Surrounded by light
I am confined
Within a media-world
Of entertainment and news
My mind is made up
Of all the things that I see and do
I am a robot
But no

Update:

The Rhythm and Rhyme of the Unfinished Poem

An old man dances with now
A young man pines for not
Glowing eyes reflect crackling light
Murky nothingness just past the darkness dome
Driverless cars ride a highway to hell
Chemical fumes gas kids in the back
Damage neurons with questions like quacks
Endless appeals from a pealing church bell
Before silence when the wrong time is perfect for the tome …

sat in the light of day
badge of worn iron
over you
and me
the grass and the birds
sweet heaven and hell
together beyond
do you most cherished son
walk upon the earth

Evercreasingly included
- on the path not deluded
If ever we are to see
Everyone up and on the floor
The people are to be
Dancing with technology

With all the feet stomping
Wooden floors with Tony Lama boots
the collective embodiment

of bunions and corns and spurs
whistles the dogs and tames the curs

of power's communication
To give the wolf his room to run

three blind mice
see how they run
they all went after
the farmer's wife
who'd never seen
such a thing in her life
as three blind
