Death of a Genre
  JERRY BROWNING  

 NAKED DREAMS   

 


Death of a Genre
 

once passing down lore
and love and lessons,
the original gift’s forsaken
and banished by the tribe

like the first stone tool
falling into time’s black well
the words become indifferent
with a subtle, silent splash

passion sinking in quicksilver
drowning in technology
resting in pieces and ignored
by starving bottom feeders

                Ottawa, Ontario '10
