“The Final Sound” by Nick Pipitone.

staring at these screens, I wonder
if I’ll get sucked in one day &
live inside the vastness of

they tell me about virtual reality
I cringe, then remind myself
you can’t stop progress

technology speeds up
like a fast-tracked audio file
& when it gets to the end
will we hear the final sound?

    This is so intriguing. I love how you went with the second half of the poem to end with the question. Good work! 💕

    Is the final sound a windows error noise?
