Celling Out the Alarm

Co-emergent radiation transports an alarm
through inescapable tunneling into minds
ear-locked onto a wireless technology
going senile in the prime of its life,
drowning society in microwaves

Betting the presentense on tomorrow’s early retirement
the largest human biological experiment ever held
is using micro-toxic devices heating the brain stem
proteins leaching across the blood-brain of time

“Hello–Is anybody there?”

*In order to avoid celling out the alarm
the mobile phone industry has cut research
into the health effects surrounding public relations
to stop wasting money, time, money and energy
looking for irradiated senile neurons.

“Hello–Does anybody care?”

*Your cell phone is dead–please hang it up.
