Writing 201: Poetry, Day Nine — Landscape, Found Poem, Enumeratio

Virtual Landscape

Winner-takes-all

Sitting on a similar pile

Plainly

Every minute of every day

Ever more atomised, more fragmented, more individualised

A libertarian’s wet dream

Thoughtful contrarian

Enough dirty cabs

Certainly economically

‘Sharing’ economy

Astonishing numbers

Existed recognisably

A brave man

Stratospheric numbers

Nascent network

Compounding existing inequalities

This Faustian deal

Undreamt-of

Personally, socially, culturally

Winnowing away

Catalyst for change

A great tool for persecuting people

Quite disturbing and problematic

Profound, structural change

Many-tentacled
