poetry by j matthew waters


reborn from the ashes
of ancient man
my new robot registers
some 2.4 million
years of age

her memory recalls
walking upright
from the very start
when dinosaur parts
sold on street corners

newly retooled in a shop
in downtown phoenix
his synthetic upgrades
looked as real as
tomorrow’s avatars

aware its architecture
forever evolved
it didn’t take long
until i was integrated
into the next release

august two thousand twelve
