The second in command

Concentrate
on the substrate
then expand it
with silicate
and
build your dreams
wafer thin.

Getting into it now
going
down through
the sub system and
into the quantum where
different rules apply

life resumes in beta or
zeta
which is Greek to me

even as I shrink and my
eyes cannot stand it
the substrate
expands
and the light comes in bands
but silently.

Trying to get a grid view
I look through the netting
but I’m
not getting what I need
and
amid the seeds where discounts grow
discontentment sows itself
to show up as the Alpha male.

I try again to concentrate
on the substrate
but fail
miserably.
