The Unbeating Heart

total demise is inevitable
for we are becoming the machine.
i cannot work without a machine,
nor can i speak to my neighbor,
nor get to the doctor, buy food,
supplies, or do much

we have become co-dependent
with machine.
my life, my world,
your life, your world,
our lives, our world
becomes the gears,
the circuits, the unbeating heart
the machine.

machines break down,
gears rust, circuits fry,
programs become antiquated,
security breeches, systems fail.
what happens when this machine
we are becoming falls apart?
total demise
