freestyle sonnet #039: SO MUCH USELESS LINKS RE: FAMOUS DEATH BUT REALLY THIS COULD BE ABOUT ANYTHING ANY DAY

Quantity of nutritionless information
overload exploding through wireless connections
to digital network - psyche devastation,
third eye rubbed shut by foggy, hazy deceptions,

or half-formed thinks tossed litter-like across platforms
tapping pack norms built into our tribal innate
genetic make-up. All these meaningless brainstorms
of celebrated moments choke heart into state

of inertia. Social dementia, all quickly
forgotten as soon as next hot new nowness gets
inserted into vast data inputs slickly.
Metaphysically sick as it never lets

up, mainstream more massive and ceaseless than ever,
causing clenched heart to want to logout forever.
