#1 by Gabriel Hadad

Let the eagles soar
and the masses sing
Let the overlords of algorithm
dictate our lives
with their cocktail mix of sadism and whim
Turn the computer on for the blank scene
got hit w/a missile fusillade
of sadness that glides thru clouds
that morphs into a room number
9 to 5 24/7 365 times 70 or 80
zero ideas
& 96 tears
Pictures are pictures
numbers are what they are
drifting pushed by inertia
ill-fitting within the confines
of a room ten stories above
this hotel lounge & bar
getting to work my only chore
depleted after a most ordinary night

Gabriel Hadad. I work doing translations and stuff in the North East USA.
