the scent of a truffle and wandering off
into a forest in search of it.
It seemed as if the world was about to
become a whole lot more like a lucid dream,
where the future was less a place we arrived
at than a thing we created together.

Hire an AI actor for new project, reading
a transcript of a fever dream in the hope, it
will receive recognition by the Screen Actors Guild,
said it in such a way that was designed
to grab attention, to be polarizing,
to get through bureaucratic doublespeak.
poetry as resistance in the meme era,
this memes artwar, we have gotten sick of it,
and that is the tragedy of humanity
something that the internet doesn’t know
it can’t tell me about the soul for the internet
can only rely on digital interpretations.
Honestly, Kierkegaard didn’t even know
what REAL despair was, because he never lived
with fake news, trolling, echo chambers,
filter bubbles, tweets, and selfies
Humanity is unconsciously living in
a psychedelic landscape and having a bad trip
It is rendering our fear, paranoia, greed, and panic.
