The crisis of immediacy

Life as a constant emergency
Left me exhausted
Immediacy of anger dwindled
Timeliness of my outrage
Replaced by dull cynicism

As the pump of adrenaline accelerated
Beyond my comprehension
I balanced on the wave of
Cresting bytes
With palpable constancy

I slammed into a wall
Of inaction
Like a cheetah after being hunted
Does that which is not newly broken
Still have relevance?

This poem was inspired by this blog post whose title I borrowed
