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

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

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

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

I chose - Not.
