Spiderweb

To what shall I compare
The networks we all share?
A spiderweb, a slight tug—
a vibration, an indifferent shrug.

A cycle of water,
The birth of another,
A child and a mother—
An inherently interwoven connectedness
by a Weaver without rest.

However, tell me
How many trees
And birds and bees
Dispelled unheard pleas
Yet we did not cease?

How many instrumental tracks
From videos in our televisions
Must try to knock
At our hardened conscience—
Open eyes with a closed vision.

To what shall I compare
The networks we all share?
Perhaps a rotting root
Bitter and in despair.
