Art by G. A. Rosenburg

sitting, spine curling, eyes glassy in rebound reflection 
internal struggle in cyberspace brings smiles and a few brief howls
feeding off my own mass, I disregard this reality

neural synapses tickle the pleasure centers free of charge
have I eaten, have I bathed, have I moved in how many hours 
regard the fantasy, I am the princess ax in hand

clans form around the click and ping the web drawn tight glows
world within world, the always ever after grows and grows, unreal
reality, the construct of naive minds, re-envisions itself

What a great image you use here. If I am not mistaken Spider Robinson is a science fiction writer(?) You really stimulate the brain cells with this one! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Deb, love it (and not just because my last name is in the title lol) Did you use the painting as inspiration? Is that something you do a lot? I'm still new I'm exploring all the free verses on here

You should check out Francine Sterle's collection Nude in Winter then. You would love her she's brilliant (like you)
