Poems: Getting Away From It All & Which Pill?

Poem created in response to Robert Lee Brewer’s Wednesday Poetry Prompt 221, 29 May 2013.  Topic: unplugged

Getting Away From It All

He woke to the sound
of the servers in alarm
before the brain fog
lifted and he realized
he was hearing cricket song.

(form: shadorma)

Which Pill?

Red or blue?
Given such a choice,
I’ll always
opt for red.
Pull the plug, lower the veil,
and see the real world.
