by Nevada Kerr

Blurred faces and half a heart
I can't catch a glimpse of you
Vaporous in foreign parts
And what a shifting view

The insight flicker in the cold
Lightning quick and rashly bold
With an instant message overload
Of bulletins I can't decode

Immortal you endured forever
In an outpost on the moon
Suspended between now and never
On the brink of not too soon

To hell and gone and far beyond
At the threshold of the past
The residue of a peculiar spawn
You change your mind so fast

In the bastard slang of balderdash
You denounce your future kin
Rebuking time with scourge and lash
Till the unbegotten cringe
