Poem of the Month contest entry


I wanted to capture the helter skelter crazy pace of today's digital world in this piece, and to do that I decided to use this hip hop urban kind of rhythm, fast paced as the New York City streets and chock full of all those competing arcade images flashing all around you. I wanted to capture the sense of the individual being overwhelmed by the fine print, by large cap mega companies, the law and popular opinion. In today's world, you get swept away by the popular opinions, or turned off by them. estory
