Title: Disconnected.

Sitting before temple in moderately intense 9am sunrays.
Foster family inside, praying to
stern deity of florid face
and consternation slanted eyebrows.
Reminiscent incense:
long dormant memory of factory pipe-jointing compound.
Red paper lanterns:
Virgin air balloons.
Chirping birdsong:
some variety of ringtone.
Contemplating the possibility of belonging
[a repetitious theme in my experiment].
Oh me:
my metaphor synthetic,
Losing all connection to the planet of my fathers:
the temple but a website,
logging in and out,
you see,
as need commands them.
