Myth-Kitty: Very Good Brain/You Are Not Alone

Artist Statement…

I was compelled to create this piece because of my own love affair, and near total state of compulsion towards the use of media.  At one time, it was a means of creating friends, networking, and travelling for me.  In recent times I had found myself glued to Facebook, CNN, music sites, YouTube, and the never-ending onslaught of media time-wasters to the point where it was creating a rift between myself and some friends and loved ones.  When we see things that are beautiful, or funny, or that bring up a feeling of nostalgia, we photograph and record those instances, and we “snap” them, or “Instagram” them.

This poem is about media obsession, and being overwhelmed with the digital era.

It’s so wonderful to be alive.

It’s a beautiful day, and life is magic.

We are beautiful.  We can do it.  Whatever we want.

We are magnificent.

 

We are lovers in the dark,

and we are in the business of everything.

We will make America great again.

We have made America great.

 

 

Look into the screen, and see

The face of your best friend…

Your mother, and your unborn child.

Hear their thoughts,

See what they will see.

See what they have seen.

 

We can show you so many things.

 

And tell you so many things.
