Ghosts in the Machine
by Richard Tornello
Ghosts in the machine, we
Macro (self considered-centered)
Looking in reverse at the basic structure,
The fundamental granular-quantum-mechanical
Function of this reality
Not part of, but is it itself, the real macro
Over arching the it of which we are but bit-built-encompassed
What we call civilization
Ghosts in this quantum granular reality.
Maybe on the next rebound
that team will get the ball and score
they get to play.
