Ode To An Unreleased Game: Atari 5200 Asteroids

Prototype lifestyle
Sitting on a shelf somewhere
Waiting to have life

They programmed me to
Launch the 5200
Into hearts and minds

My graphics are great
As if you were in the arcade
But with no vectors

I am unwieldly
I cannot be controlled
I’m a maverick

I am still just code
A burned eprom demo
A shadow, a ghost

I sit in the dark
Longing for a shipping date
Not my destiny
