Thus and so you and I go
As almost-night lays out against our sky, a sick man IV'd arms out unconscious
So I'll go with you now through particular half-shut roads that talk not loud
To nobody up past two again
at a crummy inn, morning a slow drill, sawdust sandwich and chalky pill
Roads that follow in no hurry windy logic to an insidious conclusion
Oh do not ask what is it
Now I do await our visit #ouliprufrock
no! i am not famous scottish royalty;
i am just a toady, who will do
for advancing a plot or to start an act or two,
advising a young monarch; no doubt, a basic tool,
sycophantic, glad to aid a crown,
politic, cautious, and rigorous,
loquacious, but slowing down;
on occasion, almost ridiculous -
almost, habitually, a fool.
i mark nymphs riding out away from my coast
combing thinning hair of surf blown back
as a wind blows it all pallid and black.
you and i sat idly in atlantis all along
among nymphs who would sport a conch and scallop crown
until talking stirs us, and you and i both drown.
@phooky what a bunch of charlatans, hawking a computing station that can't scan data off a punchcard! how in tarnation am i going to run my calculations?
Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
