    1. Of course it will.

      We’ve been watching over your planet for billions of years now.
      It is time to post blogs on this machine and let you and the world know about other extraterritorial aliens of what they can introduce to new poetic imagery.

      🙂

  1. The 21st century will lose its touch on actual humanity. Technology will differently distract people more from their activities of their daily social life.

    Great post by the way…Its about time you got aliens got here.

  2. Well Hello – 17 followers and no posts yet… must be alien mind control!!
    Quite a premise here: “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
    Play on!

    1. I’m not familiar with that movie.

      Are you familiar with (William Gibson)? His one of my influences. Have you read (Neuromancer)? Great book by the way…I highly recommended.

  3. An awesome program, and well worth the sweat! Your summary reminds me of Snow Crash, the rot thickly spread on the surface of this beautiful world, Phynance as Ubu Roi used to say… Will follow at close range 🙂

      1. Yes, Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon are the two books I read so far. Snow Crash invented the “Metaverse” as we know it. I reviewed Cryptonomicon on my blog 🙂

  4. Indeed…

    You’ve learn to understand what mother-nature herself goes through with humanities stupidities and their foolish wars. I come to educate those who want to listen and understand my message and cybernetic frequencies. 🙂

  5. Thanks for following zen crunch, Charlie Zero. I like your 7 suggestions to better serve the earth–music, dance, literature, love, poetry, books…all good (communication can get complicated, but maybe that’s true of everything). See you in cyberspace.

  6. Hey Charlie! Love the premise of your blog 🙂 Thanks for liking my post and ‘following’.. much appreciated! I look forward to reading your archive and future posts.

  7. Finally! Someone who makes sense!! And isn’t boring ! Thanks for the pictures you put in my head! An inspiration! Now I want to write a poem about our elite ruling class running on cylinders choking on sediment coming out of gas with ethanol. But you can do a better job of it than I can, so feel free if you need a topic! 😉

  8. Hey man (or whatever unearthly organism you are), thanks for the follow on my blog! I’ve gotta say, your poetry is, quite simply, out of this world – visceral and chaotic, and yet it all comes together quite miraculously. Great stuff. Crack cocaine of language.

  9. I like what I see and especially what I don’t (white noise image..loved). Thanks for liking and following my blog. I look forward to more interesting activity from you…:)

  10. So glad to see your using your talents and creativity online to better this place. By the way, I read your article on bullying. Your story and writing is so powerful, I was crying and feeling like I lived your hell. This world can be such a mean place. Glad I met you on dVerse. You have so much talent and wisdom to share.

  11. Hay I just came up with something after reading your blog. I’m a NetPoeGoth more likely I’m Goth at heart who loves to be online writing poetry. 🙂 I like your blog. Its unique and interesting to read.

  12. This is a veru quirky and cute About Me page, I really like it! And you said you perform poetry in opec mic community? May I just say I am so in love with spoken word and my fave artists are Shane Koyczan and Andrea Gibson!! 🙂

  13. I really love your style of writing. Very different and dark which is very appealing to me. As i have time I will continue to read through your works. Thanks for sharing. I do hope to become successful with my own poetry one day.

  14. I had to check who ‘Trent Reznor’ from the band ‘Nine Inch Nails’ – was. (am I on the not-wanted list now?) Nice to read more about you! 😀

    1. Thank you…:) I’m glad you enjoy.
      Nine Inch Nails is the best band ever.

      🙂

      oh…the poem I was telling you about is titled: Science Fried my Egg Cells – (A Psychiatrist Journey into the Dissecting Ripple Hiss)

      Hope you like it…I’m so excited what you and others think about it.

    1. hi! Phoebe. Nice to make your acquaintance. I’m so glad you liked my blog and my poems. Hope your head didn’t hurt from all my intense imagery that’s all over the place. 🙂

      Curious how did you stumble on my page? 🙂 I followed your page as well. 🙂

    1. Thank you sir. 🙂 I knew you would enjoy it. More to come Tomorrow morning at 3:00am. I will update all day every day. My poem will start popping up on everyone’s current new post. 🙂 Trust me this next one will be a mind bending trip odyssey. 🙂

      1. Yes!! You have an awesome aura dude. I’ll look forward to every one you post. Already have notifications set lol

        When you use mind bending trip with odyssey….are you saying like a “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” or a “Major Tom” odyssey or maybe something like 2112 by Rush?

  15. Hello Soul finder
    This is by far, the most interesting bio section I’ve come across in the blogosphere. Very intriguing. Hi again Charlie.
    We just met a couple of hours ago 🙂
    Staying tuned,
    Soul catcher.

  16. Trent reznor? SOLD! Totally following you . I watched them live in Manchester, U.K. in 2014. It was EPIC! You weren’t kidding about the bloody dictionary, you poems read like a mad genius. 😉 I mean that as a compliment because we are all mad here but some are just slightly off the scale eccentric ans I kind of like that.

  17. Hi, Charlie! Just took a look at your blog! I like how you designed the look of your blog, very cool! So, you published three books already. Congratulations! Where in California do you live right now? I love SoCal!

    1. Hi! Erika, thank you so much for reading and liking my Bio.

      Actually, I only published 1 poetry book. The others we’re just little chapbooks. 🙂

      I live in the Boyle Heights area, home of Los Angeles. I don’t live that far from Hollywood. The drive from Boyle Heights to Hollywood is only 12 minutes. So I’m close to everything in my area.

      You live in SoCal as well?

      1. No unfortunately I don’t. But since I have been there for the first time 7 years ago I fell in love with it and visited 10 to 11 times since then. It is my fueling station!

    1. Awesome! Thank you for reading.

      To answer your question: Yes, and No. I say this because seeing is how NASA wants to find a habitable life on another planet. It seems as if they want to leave earth abandon, with no hope of fixing this mother of ours.

      What do you think Cara? Should NASA colonize Mars?

      I am currently following your page and will be there soon to read your work and your Bio.

      Curious: How did you find my page?

      1. I totally agree with you. Instead of abandoning the planet in a pathetic state, we all should try our level best to fix it. I think the damage can be repaired. It’s late, but not too late. So yeah, SpaceX and NASA should abandon the thought of colonising Mars. Sorry if the question sounded absurd. You were giving some sort of alien vibes, so I wondered if you could share your thoughts with us Earthlings.
        And sorry again, I can’t recall how I came across your blog.
        Maybe I was checking the recommendation page.

  18. Very interesting work! Thought provoking, challenging, interesting. I’m surprised we haven’t found each other around here before since it seems we’ve both been writing on this platform for a while. Glad to have met you now. Looking forward to more of your work!

    1. Thank you so much for reading and observing.

      What you’ll read here on the page will always be challenging to the reader and its always different every post. Never the same.

      I’m also surprised myself too. Now we have found each other and we shall learn from each other. 🙂

      Looking forward to reading more of your work as well. 🙂

    1. I don’t really like exposing myself or expressing who I am. In my poetry I hide behind cryptic or strange ways of writing. I’ll give you one thing. I was a victim of bullying throughout my life. Since then, I suffer from PTSD. Hope this helped a little.

  19. You were right…I am scratching my head. 😁
    I admit I don’t understand your poetry, but I am a simple person who doesn’t “get” the abstract. But it seems as if you have many readers who do, and who appreciate your talent.
    Keep writing! 🙂
