Contexts

What can we say

about what we say?

Do the limits of our language

delimit our world,

or meanings

our understandings?

Must a certain meaning

preclude its opposite

of necessity

– to avoid contradiction

and place logic in charge

of truth?

‘Uncanny valley’

Is it nature’s way

to augment itself

with artificialities:

ex-organic

post-evolution

– creation recreated?

Life unliving

vivified with digital spirit

and hyper-intelligence:

impeccable cold logic

untouchable synthetic heart

– exquisitely non-human?

Preparations

What if there more to existence

than the ‘now’ of it

– than all that exists

in and for the time being?

Then does everything in existence

act as a threshold

for that which is yet to be?

And what of explanation?

Is it possible

to find the greater in the lesser

– to see the form of things to come

in all that was?
