Are you comfortable with computers
With all their ram computing?
Are you comfortable with monitors
With all their light progressing?
Are you comfortable with yourself?
Do you not have parts also moving?
Nuerons for conductors
Nerves for metal wires
Lack of rest for slow processing
Flesh bodies for plastic cases
Brains for hard disks
Déjà vu for ghosts in the machine.
Heart attacks for blue screens of death
Cancer for Trojan viruses
Social norms for standard protocols.
Organ transplants for hardware upgrades
Continuing education for system updates
People's buttons for a keyboard's
Waste for recycling bins
Computers enact responses within
While we enact ours from without.
Reality like inputs
Interpreted, understood and responded to
By electrons through neural pathways
And chemical agents with synapses
to muscle fibers and movement
of matter through time and space.
Emotions shown in 1080p
On the monitor of our eyes
By the projector of our actions
In the space of virtual memory.
While our actions differ
in scale, source, and format,
the one thing uncoded
Such routines result
in heaven and hell,
Bit depths that binary can’t reach.
