Been Down/Been There 2003

frantic tapping of my fingers
touching the keys where others before me touched
I'm shattering the silence of the library

like a chorus of locusts
my fingers scour the internet searching
for the vital meat of a job

the justification
the shred of decency
the treacle of hope

we are/I am the bread pudding of
human kind
but I do not accept a crust

why am I/why are we encased
in a cocoon of wasted despair
seeking the next seat in front of the
gateway to middle American sameness
which feeds the gullet but
does not serve the soul.
