For My Overlords

by Chris Sorrenti


so little of me
so much of them -

deserts of information
expanding
mountains of data
rising
oceans of news
spilling fatigue
junk mail
blackmailing me to vault
the poll breaks
every night
crash landing me
into the gun barrel
of my bed
few precious hours
before morning
triggers again -

ever less of me
into more of them

Well worded testament to the overwhelming overlords...it's good to read you, Chris, you always have such clarity, such preciseness in your words that captures me.
