Poetry ~ Becky Kilsby

Data Chains

The hush and pull of surf along my veins
is lost beneath the crackling static beat –
incessant input blizzard, data chains.

Desire for languor, cobalt-lime refrains,
a hammock daze of summer, leafy heat –
the hush and pull of surf along my veins

is pummelled, kicked and blistered by the strains
of push it faster, farther, Like and tweet –
incessant input blizzard, data chains.

The drive to outperform, a slick campaign
to surge ahead, suck accolades and cheat
the hush and pull of surf along my veins –

inhales the heady air of buzz domains
ignoring hum and pulse of rhythmic feet.
Incessant input blizzard, data chains

asphyxiate the chime of warm terrains
that balm, seduce and spice – contralto sweet
the hush and pull of surf along my veins.
Incessant input blizzard. Data chains.

Poetry for Becky is an intellectual and emotional tango. Whether reading or writing, her feet are tapping and synapses sparking with the life of words combined in startling new ways. British by birth and upbringing she lives and teaches in Dubai and spends summers back in the tranquil beauty of the English Lake District. 3 grown sons and an action-loving husband make for busy, thriving times.
