“Messages, Pt. 2-Telemetry”
© 2010 C. Rose

do you study me with telemetry?
because there’s no evidence
that you’re seeing me.
not really.

you may understand the physiology.
but can you see what truly lies inside of me?
________________

the contact has broken
though the words remain unspoken.
my persistence
your resistance
and a distance that is already starting to grow.
_________________

do you study me with telemetry?
because there’s no evidence
that you’re seeing me.
not really.
________________

in the program
interference
or maybe it’s an incoherence.
not a virus
or a cancer
and the answer may not even lie in the words.
_________________

do you study me with telemetry?
(is there a secret lost within the system?)
because there’s no evidence
that you’re seeing me.
(or is it one you choose to hide?)

you seem to feel safe inside of your machine
but I have found the sound it makes is deafening.
__________________

do you study me with telemetry?
because I feel this distance may be killing me.
it’s killing me.
