screen glow reflects off obsidian lenses.
eyes peer through,
darker pools and brighter lights
behind them.

pixels scan and fire.
electrons cycle in excitement and rest,
reds, blues, and greens engaged

ones and zeros follow silicon creekbeds tinier than touch,
yet something flows
between/beyond the binary.

they say there's a ghost in the machine.
i call for a recount,
thinking there may be many more
within the labyrinth.
