If I had the time to be a hero
I would marry technology
For a day, download my soul
Into the skyline of the net
And stretch my body
Across the galaxy
But for a day or a lifetime
I’m still biological, human
With needs like a mammal
Anonymous among the crowds
I have only the energy
To survive, my friends
Have come and gone too many times
To count, and the places
All seem the same
I’ve seen the outrageous dreams
Of humankind, to get rich
And felt the kiss of people
Without any true imagination
How they exploit you in their own way
If I had time to be a hero
I would study the algorithms
And perfect the patterns of history
So that I might better participate
In that which is inevitable
And join the wonder
Like always, the new paradigm
And bridge the gulf between
Organic and machine
My mind a software that can be mapped
My brain a complexity
That can be reverse-engineered.
Incredible idea.Wonderful composition.
Thanks Margaret, some of my poems are futurist rants.
Science fiction like.I like them though.If you call them rants then every poem ever written is as it involves wildest possibilities within grasp of our imaginations only.Thats why your work is pretty awesome.
Reblogged this on Underground Energy.
my response to your wonderful poetry:
That’s so cool! Like the next gen of spoken word.
