Archive for the tag “hacker”

protecting the witness


my innermost thoughts
became stolen and plastered
all over the web
my complex passwords compromised
for any novice hacker
to copy or cut and paste

within milliseconds
my childhood story went viral
via black and white videos
forcing me to step off the grid
and start a new life
as someone I once knew

to catch a soul


I am trapped inside this virtual
world where judgments
are issued without warrant
and disenchanted encoders
sip on encrypted whiskey
while laughing silently

without notice shots of pain
stream down the sciatica river
where boys sit on rocks
and pretend to fish
with artificial bait
waiting to steal my soul
