Software Engineer

We watched you die in a New York hospital
from our engineering lab here in Oregon

There you were in our system log files
your cardiac alarms ringing off the hook

Ventricular tachycardia!
Nurse! Come quick! I want to live!

And your impossibly brave heart tried
to hold on–for twenty minutes

But nobody came until it was too late
Shit hit the fan later. The usual inquiries

and finger pointing. We hooked you up
but your friends weren’t there

And everybody needs friends
on this cold blue ball
