the colors slowly change-
light blue to green-pause-
two reds-one dark green;
which belongs at the end-gone-
back to the beginning…)
“No, dang it, something’s running
in the background, gotta
try shutting some of this crap
(Again, the colors slowly pulse,
hypnotizing in their symbolism
of complexity, soothing
in their steadfast beauty of
self-repair, dazzling, diversified,

optimized, beckoning, the allure
