mentally ill in the surveillance age
by Matthew Armagost

paranoid engineer;
i deconstruct every device
in the 
Apple catalog.

mechanical ornithologist;
i check off every drone
in the
Lockheed catalog.

schizophrenic pharmacist; 
i swallow every pill
in the 
Pfizer catalog. 

digital grey skies 
cry de-ionized tears.

watching the Watchers,
who will blink first?
