Look and See

ghost screen

She thinks she's looking out
upon human adaptation,
she thinks she's well-informed about
 history and a new dimension.

She thinks she'll use what's virtual,
to replace what's lost from living;
 virtual's the new actual,
 about getting without giving.

She thinks that sense of nameless dread
is an atavistic paradigm
of grief and loss when the past is dead;
 irrelevant in Real Time.

She thinks she knows the difference
between what's taped or live;
  but the caption "as it happens"
remains on "News at Five."

She thinks she's seeing through a glass
but she's looking at a screen;
how long can this illusion last
for this human, being ?
