New Draft (Poem 200408 lf)

Specialize or decay. For better or worse it has implanted it’s pieces into the heart of human functioning.

stripped to the bone

our ancesters made tool from stone and a ligament bind

yet now the majority are blind
bound to car and cell

making hellos in gifs

instead of making gifts

how did we know so much before building closing doors

maybe it’s not just a metaphor

we’re poor

Many poorer than the poor

survival skills left adrift for gifs

i need a knife & a raft,

If the computer craft crashed

it’d poke holes in the hull. Cull the current human draft.

We have drills now, they’re hard. Technology has bore into our cave. Digital cascades of beta waves carving decades of data days. Specialize or decay. For better or worse it has implanted it’s pieces into the heart of human functioning.

it wouldn’t be the computers these days that take down the majority of humanity, it would be loss of them.

  1. Glad to see you’re getting time to think again. Just wanted you to know I think you meant STRIPPED for your first word, not something with stripes.
