Poem: "Corrup"

This is today's freebie, inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] freshbakedlady. It also fills the "disaster" square in my 1-1-20 card for the Less Usual Bingo Patterns fest. Imagine that this is printed with the title in a fading or disintegrating font, which I can't make in Dreamwidth but have seen elsewhere.


Damaged manuscripts
float through cyberspace
like ash in a column of smoke.

Corrupted files give up
the ghost in the machine.

Order dissolves into chaos,
slowly, one bit at a time.

Entropy nibbles like
a cosmic mouse,
devouring the world
byte by byte.
