~ singularity's brink ?
are we near the nether edge where real
and virtual are just a-and-b-sides for
the theme music for the march of genes?

analogue wonder of our bag of meat and
bones eclipsed by a digital perfection
where we can wallow in spotless dreams?

communal fragmented into isolated pods
reveling in the instantaneous illusion
of sharing thought divorced from being?

hunkered down in always online bunkers,
who will see the new barbed-wire fence
surrounding shrinking personal freedom?

to me the choice's clear: to hell with
virtual suicide by FaceBook or Twitter

«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
