Lost in the Electric

you set fires
in the lines you write
in the computer universe light
breaking through the boundaries
of simple human thought
your notebook checks the spelling
and finds the perfect font
you're punching at your memories
pounding at the keys
point and click and you're a genius
your friends list will agree
forward me your yearning
send me a link to your loss
blog about your learning
in the electric you are lost
lock me in your network
I'm the icon you regret
one more page lost in the billions
a soul caught in the net
your fire's just a flicker
the screen, your eyes and head
quoted throughout the wire world
with things you never said
