I am a Jew trapped in a Celtic face
The one both like and unlike you
The first to become a citizen of the World
Ready to renounce Religion, Tribe, Clan
Sweating the Middle East through
My brain, giving my heart to Asia
Hoping for the discovery of new
Exoplanets and the emergence
Of a self-aware AI, some super-intelligence
It’s a corrupt world still, however
There’s nothing left now but
The food of humor, surely not the Environment
I live at the edges, study the fringes
The Immortality at the sleep of dawn
Her dreamless dream of virtual reality
It’s bluer than a violet’s edge
I am a Jew trapped in a foreign face
One among the homeless that lines for bread
And a last cup of clean water
Before water is stolen from Canada
By the United States of corporate greed.
A universal-esque poem. Loved it!
Thank you, I was feeling quite contemporary today. We are in a golden age of astronomy on the cusp of a golden age of AI, it’s an exciting period of human history.
Exactly!!! that’s what I wanted to say, I’m an astronomy freak.
I love this story, layers so beautifully strung.
