Poetry #21
(published Late in the Year, 2000)
by D.C. Fields

half on half off
the epitome of efficency
(or laziness)
who am i to say?

each moment of life
is measaured in wavelengths
60hz worth of 010101
half of life is spent in zeroes
darkness we cannot see

even this web I am trapped in
displayed for eyes half seeing the day
dark letters on dark plasma screens
punctuated by light
so briefly and inane

there is nothing to fear
in shadow the world is forever the same
with a flick of the switch
I turn the darkness on
and chase the light away
