The Samaritan Machine – Strider Marcus Jones


this field pond
is only my
thought drops
of summer rain
making fractal ripples
drumbeat on skin.
a portal shared
with cawing crows
who scams and snoops and shoots
in contract conversations.
this windsong
of Virginia Creeper,
ruling Bear and Wolfsbane
rustling in black bamboo
trusts its Samaritan Machine
telling it who to redact
in this imposed
of dumbed-down masses
worshipping Carousel.
