Data

Trimeric poem

In the dome, thoughts constellate in spaces dark and void of air,
Neurons lighting up, as pixels in an infinite code,
Programming which downloads a language unknown, and prone to glitches,
An arcade of concepts consternate in phrases which won’t translate,

Neurons lighting up, as pixels in an infinite code,
8bit figments, which fragment and implode into black holes,
Bred on bright flashes, dopamine rich colours, and catchy soundbites,

Programming which downloads a language unknown, and prone to glitches,
Words attacking my brain do not compute - troubleshoot, reboot,
Firing up, extraterrestrial pondering descends as space invaders,

An arcade of concepts consternate in phrases which won’t translate,
Utilising tools, upgrading dictionary and thesaurus,
A nebula of ionised words, nouns, adjectives and verbs, to explore...

    1. Far from it actually, I’m not particularly techie – more of an outdoorsman.

      It’s been interesting to see everyone’s interpretation of the poem. It was intended to be wholly metaphorical, with the limitless quality of space contrasted against cyberspace’s equally infinite scope, liken to the unquantifiable data the human brain process, everyday.

  1. Darius,
    There’s a pixelated constellation of exquisite phrases here, bu this one stood out for me: “An arcade of concepts consternate in phrases which won’t translate.” Just a pleasure to read.

  2. Wonderful and unusual poetic vocabulary of the modern world here Darius:
    ‘In the dome, thoughts constellate in spaces dark and void of air,’ – that says it all to me. So much information out there, that it almost has a life of its own…

  3. Really interesting and thought provoking. I feel I should share this with the computer nerds in my family, particularly my brother who is a programmer. He always disliked the literature or humanities classes that I loved. Perhaps, this is a poem he can appreciate! 🙂
