Our Mother, the Internet

Forgive me mother for I have sinned
this is my first confession
Send and no confession
to follow
the invocation on the screen

Grey was twelve when he plugged himself in
Mother shot heroin
In the bathroom while the baby cried
and he covered his ears
with the mechanical hands of a child
blaring music to mute the world that was not his
reality:

This is the mise en scène
of a scene called chaos.
He tried again.
Forgive me Mother for I have
sinned this is
my first confession
Send and the search returns
Articles of God.
