I'm sipping organic lager
From a squat brown bottle. I'm back
In the past, last July in fact.
Here are the books I've digitized
To consume from my mobile phone:
Vikings, Species, Happiness, Risk,
Poetry, Poetry, Poesie,
Seneca, the Mary Celeste,
Signals, Wolves, Whores, Don Quixote.
Statistics reveal the hazards
That, if I hazarded a guess,
I've unavoidably taken.
Techno pumps dumbly from magnets
Outside of the sidewalk cafe.
There's a chance I'll live to read this.
