Vorticism 1987

Miniature relays flash
OpenClosed at lightspeed
Screeching print heads
Pepper paper with
Insignificant ink points.
Short-lived electrons catapult
Through cathode-ray tubes,
Explode in green-screen triumph
And quickly fade.

Working late at the office,
Basking in eerie emerald light,
I settle into my
Silicon Mother’s arms.

— Stace Johnson, 1987
