Internet of things


the Internet is close to breaking
out of its shell
releasing a super new version
that is bound to blow your mind

how far this Internet of things
can take us all
is limited only by our imagination
whether it be reaching new worlds
or blowing up this one
as we know it

girl with poker face smile


girl in polka dot dress sits and
sips cappuccino at the internet cafe
nose to chin masked behind
fingers concealing pocket aces

conspiring to expose her hand
I move all in escorted by kings
proclaiming to win her heart

girl with poker face smile
sips cappuccino at the internet cafe
her eyes looking down and
alluringly taking this town

Untitled Document


They told me to sign here
but I refused

I refused to give them my blood
or my urine or my
social security number

Instead I stood in line
this imaginary line
drawn somewhere on the Internet
nobody could reach without possessing
proper credentials

When given a free pass
I knew there was no going back
and my virtual signature was certain
to never have existed

million dollar app


i’ve been working on this app idea
the kind you buy at the app store
and somehow magically appears
on your smartphone
which really isn’t just a phone
but a device
that attaches itself to your body
all day and all night
regulating your bodily functions
telling you when your glucose is low
and your blood pressure high
monitoring your communication activity
both on and offline
and offering to be your second best friend
even though your dog
already knows better
