Cyborgs (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #13)   Leave a comment

Cyborgs are already here
You and I have become them
Cellphones and headphones appear
Means to a digital end

We are one with Ethernet
Progress leaps so very far
When we finally reach the end
Will we still know who we are?

– Shaman Romney 2019

Virtual Reality (National Poetry Writing Month 2016 #2)   Leave a comment

Virtual reality
Will soon be reality
For virtually everyone.
The world we see
Will be the world in front of our eyes
But not the world in front of our eyes.
Our technological peripherals will block out the periphery,
We will only see what we want to see,
and not what we really want.

To be truly connected,
We need disconnect.
To truly see,
We need to stop looking at what is in front of us,
and look at what has been in front of us the whole time.

-Shaman Romney 2016
