David S. Pointer- A Poem

Arcade Game Gurus

The digger claw crane
bucket dropped onto
piles of modified food
munchies, cancer virus
candies, and head stone
polish, so hard to pull
up like the recipes for
explosion proof innards
as excited consumer-bots
stampeded atop parents
for embalming fluid treats

Bio: David S. Pointer has new work in The Southern Poets Anthology series for the states of Georgia and Tennessee. His two newest poetry books are “Oncoming Crime Facts,” and “The Psychobilly Princess” both available at

  1. Great poem. The rumor is a Canadian film crew is going to document an upcoming dig at a New Mexico (sp?) lanfill for lost Atari games and such. That of course reminded me of this poem. ... I like the last line best, perhaps.
