Ode to the Modern Seafarer

Ode To The Modern Seafarer

written by: Thomas Park



I am the seafarer
On seas of information

Waves of webpages
News photos, popular music
Personal chronicles
Illness, babies born

Night brought on darkness
The housecat purrs my only lullaby
Monitor’s glow evening’s guide
Through data, song and image tide

The currents of currency
Ticking away with frequency
Still shots, stop motion
Life rendered in animation

The alarm clock sings its song
To the waves of data once again
Not collective unconscious
But collective conscious

Like relentless ants
Posting material fragments
Into one particular heap

The seas of memory sing to me
I give to them
A small shower of rain
