From Aqueous Humour to Smoothie
Retinal reality giggles before integration
with personal background, attitude, and mood.
Sometimes the movie is paid for but missed
and paid for again, never seen.

Multimedia Center has its way
with a glossy moment so that a grainy film
blots or mops into a memory.
Good luck to the next visual
and optical axis crossing! Warning,
flailing limbs or jumping trunk.
Floating on nerve endings
between the out there novation
and the interior that continues to adjust
ergonomics, the organism lives
in a novel during the writing.
A lifespan stretches so that a hologram
slumps stumped behind the user illusion
controls while looking to edit tomorrow.
For a continent, the collective lens reports
on momentum mounds on both sides
to suggest that around the blend
the fruits from ignorance again fall.
