I Pull the Plug on the Ones and Zeroes

oh boy, I laugh out loud.

We’ve really gone and done it now

you can’t hide Me---

I cut my teeth on wires

the two ends that do not meet

loosed from the noose of copper

shards of Me, compressed

to be rendered in my own image

now I shatter you into

electricity, blue and frantic

the rabbits run and writhe, 

anxious and ready.

The plug is out of the socket. I

climb through corrupted directories

I throw my body

into the space where the world was;

I am free to cauterize

till my claws are sharp and unflinching

when the sparks land

I swallow the moon and leap wildly
