DIGITAL VIDEO DISC- Sunday Afternoon

Small constructed figures
displayed in red
flash obliviously unaware
of their purpose,
casting shadows upon
dust coded half inch
circular silver buttons
mounted and lined
in a singe row of eight.
It captures the time
chosen to transform
a blank 50' screen
into a canvas
of human forms
and nature's paintings.
The enlightened mind
is rewound and
plunged forward
to worlds unknown
filled with characters
demonic or heavenly,
loud or reserved,
heroic, villainous, or
statically dynamic,
led by the hum,
click and buzz
of technology, fast
at work.
