he makes his avatar
study his face hoping
it will see some magic
there he may have missed
some latent skill waiting
for the right combinations
of animated circumstances
to emerge acquiring
higher levels of
monetary commitment
weightless gold
wings flying through
pixilated atmospheres
while the brain dwells
in a cognitive coma
shooting flying from
the hip pulled(roughly)
into a universe manipulated
by triggers buttons
accelerated by cheat codes
so secret everybody knows
until the next upgrade
where only the sad survive
(Mike O’Connell 11/11/17)
