BREAKING. SOON.

This poem is a reaction to contemporary media’s often sensationalized portrayal of our world, specifically of the USA’s 2016 Election Night coverage.  The poem was created by appropriating and selectively sequencing the “crawl” from various live streams of the election as well as headlines from various social media outlets.  It ends on an ominous note which I feel is fitting considering not just the new figurehead of these United States but also as an indictment of media’s role in contemporary society.
