Conscious/Precocious | Poem

heys you
coming into this structure


leaving with only a trace on the log files

downloading free mp3 files

nabbing a Pablo poem for school homework

or a book review by Jodey Bateman

or Roger Lambert's Bach Prelude

it is a little piece of our hearts you are taking

breaking or otherwise ignoring

thus we feel we have not touched you

and grow weary

of traces of log files hinting

some human was here

visits ranging from a few seconds to several hours

leaving only a trace that is not traceable

we are only seekers of truths

will you share yours?
