Thank you kind editor…

for the little blue pill for my 321* poem. Too kind.

-Tim

321*

     *

undimmed
enjoying herself

he started to answer
but his feet were swollen
and he could only

dream of the words
like some dark and
ominous screaming

he looked at her
but he could not see her
through the rolling smoke

it was so quiet
and her precarious breathing
and then he left

     *

Profound Meditations

by Ryan Held

       

     Having an avatar sounds cool, but it also sounds kind of confusing, because if all of that sensory impulse data is going to my brain, I’m not convinced that I would know the difference between when I have to pee and when my avatar has to pee.
