The Quasi's

We are the Quasi’s
Spanning the chasm between history and prophecy.
Partially carbon. Partially not.
Partiially cellular. Partially bot.
Ever in transit, enroute, reboot,
Ain’t no undo in this toute suite
No cheat sheet
Just bittersweet repeat, constant tweet
Time’s sharp cleat on bleak street.
Quoth the raven, never?
Hell, ever!
The throbbin/ bobbin/ weavin’ despair
With nary
A care
For others out there.
Nary a rhyme of regret
For those who don’t get
And yet
A shimmer/glimmer
Daring flicker, feisty, spicy, wacky
Of More, and Most.
You, and I,
PC and bot
We are the Quasi’s
No else where to grow
No sense to know
Still time for yes
I guess.
