The Ever-Deepening Sea

The evolution of the computer screen
taking the greatest minds of our
hollowed generation
tricking them into thinking the word:
Progress.

And they whisper it unconsciously in the night
along side their sleeping lover
or
in the company of strangers
disguised as friendly conversations
or
in their own time
(which has certainly become more plentiful)
to themselves
as if in a trance:

Progress
Progress
Progress
Forever!

And indeed they move forward
heading into that ever-deepening sea
and indeed they walk step by step
letting the tide rise
from their ankles to their torso
and indeed they may never wake
until they drown.
