limbic

the question mark
like a bent over old man,
the questioning of fools, the hairy palms of Neanderthals wobbling through the air conditioned malls,
no signals hitting their limbic system, reptillan brain in control
the hierarchy of needs –
food, shelter, widescreen TV,
meat, a hole,
NASCAR cutlery
the flarf gatherers
rejoice at the useless
I spend all day looking at a screen that looks back at me – there is a TV programme that is always on, somewhere
everywhere
it’s always on,
i fall asleep and wake up to see a monster, a man with a gun, a detective, a car chase, a
weather report
that radio station that plays a stairway to heaven on a 24hr loop
the white noise of the everyday
the passwords are forgotten on a daily
