Everybody is watching . And nobody
Whatever goes out the fingersis reachable toanother

Like a new manifest destiny
When compressed
Grasp for

Resembling galaxy constellations

A clunky junkyard of thousand thousand gps satellites

Beaming us back and forth.

A giant wirey hand
Could crumple all the alloy bits
Into a single cube the size of
Our state
which
suddenly, precariously holds this entire earth population.
