The Hologram

By Brian Edwards

Collisions redeem us
Or throw us into the mouth
Of the tempest
 
Through the radio static
Trans-dimensional speech
 
A single voice
May collide
With this reality
 
Electric scriptures
Pulsate in encryption
 
Millions of years
Bound up in a riddle
 
Conduits and gates
To the parallel world
 
A warning…..high voltage
Or mental oblivion
Delusions slip in through the window
 
Intrusion of the dream
The flowers of the valley
Scorched by a fire beheld
 
In thought and smoke hidden…..
Obscure light
 
A solar cataclysm
Veiled in news media mastery
Of subliminal persuasion
 
A face everyone remembers
Speaks to you
With a propaganda tongue
 
Signals of untruth
Foul the atmosphere
Kingdoms sleep in banknotes
New religions of pills
Reveal to us the depth
Of the hologram
 
If that’s all it is
If that’s all it was
 
Are we someone else’s ……
Amphetamine thought
With moonlight poured upon us
From a pale dominion of the desolate
