Game Life

My video game,

I turn it on and play,

The character’s lives.


Weird lives

Strange lives

On and on

The hard-drive spins

Until I stop

To go back to



When I stop playing

Shut the top on the machine,

Do the games really stop?

Or do I move forward

In my head

Searching for answers


Do the game characters

Come to live a life of their own

Without me

In the crystalline palace

Of pixeled fantasy?

Doing what I can’t do

In the life of the game

What happens

If it’s not all a game

If I move everything

I had hidden under that plastic lid

On this solid Earth?

Onto this solid Earth
