Fragmentising: Another Free-Sonnet

Fragmentising: Another Free-Sonnet 

To be               [a matter when there’s no question

Or not to be    [a question when nothing really matters

To sing            with a frog squatting straight

On a lotus leaf in the Honghu Lake            near Jingzhou

    To recollect            all the pasts, & mix them

Together like a glass of         cocktail

To build                      a nest of meaning

Between two broken branches on   Ygdrasil

To strive         for deity

Longevity       &

Even happiness

To come          on & off line every     other while

To compress consciousness into a file,    & upload it

    Onto a nanochip. To be    daying, to                   die
