(flix writer) | Pam Brown

 

in the meatspace days

                of home movies

             & surround sound

 i fell for your 

                  analog signals

                

twice

 

a little glitch

          involving

a hyper modern

        infomercial hack

&

i rejected

          digital currency

&

         design software

 

so

retronymical

 

               everything’s

              different now

 

               *

 

now

we 

bluesky the season -

 

we just throw things 

              up on the board

(it’s insane) 

               then we follow 

                down the line 

  of the lgbtqi writers

                            in the room

we only have 

       one straight male 

                            in the room

 

it’s

a very 

addictive show

 

our audience  -

      younger crystal addicts

           who laugh their way 

                            through it

        & get hooked

 

the buzz at the end

     leaves a good taste

             in your mouth

 

there’s a lot of fun

between the characters

                            that’s

          the wonder 

          of the show

 

it’s

like

a new language

 

we’ve taken off

          game of thrones 

                    you know

 

we wish there was a party

pulling on the heartstrings

 

so

you go 

           into the room

with an open vein 

 

my husband says

yeah you got that

that’s us 

          husband to husband

 

pushing the tone

                 horrific stories

about women for women

 

when the harassment stuff 

                               blew up

                 not super comfortable

                   not being too creepy

not being 

                  too issue-of-the-week

                        & earnest about it

 

we’re getting

            younger & younger
