Sonnet: Connected to Each Other

by Glenn Cooper

Connected to each other by synaptic junctions
mediating some simple actions such as whole-body
contraction. Thin rain who are you haunting?
The bowl of congealing cornflakes
on the table is no night to drown in.
“Peace is the heir of dead desire.”
A coherent arrangement of objects
The night smoothes out its black tarp
while fatal songs sing to the moon
a dream asleep in the thin rain. A night
to drown in. An unsusual presience.
An approach known as “geometrodynamics”.
A dead desire is haunting the thin rain.
Mother, I have not found here what I expected.
