In the Future


when you die

or are found

dy                ing

 

there will be an expert

a digital historian

poking at your retina

browsing through the light

roaming about your thoughts

but

only if you’re special

you see because they’ll see the history

of your mind

the collective human web

browsing history

scrolling down the info

of your spine

cause what’s it all for if not for

documenting a life transferred

from space to space-less-ness

then when we all scroll down

your paper skin pages

you’ll be immortal

if only for a little while

    Good dystopian view. Neuroscientists are alredy claiming to be able to read emotions with MRIS.

  2. Love the poem! Might I bother you in asking how you set up your publishing process so that the lines weave the way they do in your poem? I cannot for the life of me get wordpress to do that. It stubbornly remains on the left side of my post. : )
