Monk in the Modern World

In response to (trying to) live contemplatively in the modern world-
Not of this world

The Matrix woke me up
Its own worst enemy
Asking me the question
Red or Blue?
Of this world, or not?

I chose - Red
I chose - Not

To cling to imaginary lives
Digitally created
In plasma
But not blood.

To be an avatar
Living out on the broadband
Virtually but not quite

To be a Warhol exhibit
Fifteen minutes in eternity
Is not for me
I have other plans.

I chose - Not.
