ah the multifarious
eerily tinted sieve

of television

thru which Derrick dripped
& dried up.

what's left of Derrick?
siftings on a billion screens
rerun, bounced by satellite, analyzed

bland commentators with their dowsing wands
mumbling things like multimedia phenomenon

they spliced him up like Orpheus
"all the rage"

in the end: hypertext
without homepage

the gist & gissom of the kid is gone

Derrick's Trip - Multifarious
