I am immortal.exe

a chain of ones & zeroes and

an algorithm for consciousness

is all it took to outlive my great grandchildren

 

My corporeal self.com long ago

did succumb to nature’s appetite

perhaps re-manifested as an apple

after all the worms were through

 

Man sings songs.mp3 of men

like De Leon and Ozymandias 

who couldn’t code properly

even Hammurabi obeyed the blue screen

 

Yet.txt my escape from time

has denied one human permission:

to access moments wondrous

and let them die in the same.
