(NaPoWriMo Challenge: April 12, 2017)

Beyond the bounds of the book
lie intangible plots if youโ€™re feeling
frustration with the form: so open, flip
and close. So controlled. So safe.

Flippancy is really explorerโ€™s envy
with all their maps and metal detectors
and technology of the times threatening
our melancholy universe which spins
to the new, dangerous tale, the world wide
web, the wonderful skim, step and sinking in,
piercing and wholly unclosable.
Napowrimo 2017: Write a poem with lots of alliteration and assonance. This is dedicated to electronic literature.
