Technological Meltdown

In my house

Jungle of wires

Twist and turn

I want to escape

They are wrapping around

Strangling me

Those boa constrictor wires

.

.

Everything

Is off

All the wires

Unplugged

The switches turned

The buttons pressed

The world of mine

Is still

As all falls into darkness

.

Silence…. peace at long last

.

~

.

A ticking

I try to ignore

Sink back into my chrysalis

In empty space

But it stabs at my ears

It needs to

Stop.

.

Getting up

Out of the darkroom

Into a hall

Windows

.

Red eyes

Stare through

An alarm

I smash it

.

~

.

The authorities come

When they see my dark house

They ask

“What happened”

And I reply

That my “house plants”

Tried to take over

So I had to beat them back

Every last one
