Life, Poetry


progress has made fools of us
when we have shaped software into
the hardness of learning by rote and
carved our own demise into the code
of the machines with opposable thumbs
we thought would make our lives easier

we mistake the misappropriation of
knowledge as intelligence

the devices
that are scattered throughout the bunkers
of the world aren’t capable of independent
thought just of independent actions
without the failsafe of human interpretation

progress has made toys of us
and we have given away our souls

we are derelicts
