(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
