Golden Eye

Golden Eye


Real woods were filling up
with real snow while I sat inside

listening to Kid A on repeat,

playing Golden Eye.

The only level I remember
there was snow everywhere,
satellite towers I suppose
I was supposed to blow up,

enemy combatants

wearing winter suits,

or were they
for nuclear radiation?

I don't remember anything
really but the snow and how
I always found my way

to the edge of the game

where the details were
all a little blurred. 

Some designer got lazy, 

tired of playing God.


Whoever it was I was 

waiting for under

those pixalated pines,

I thought I gave up


waiting for years ago, 

but here I am again.

You who've come this far too,

take my cold hand.


Tell me it was you.
