Archive for the tag “artificial intelligence”

the ambiguous participant

I’ve been uninspired of late
or so the study people tell me

I keep giving these telephone interviews
a human voice on the other end

I call them by their first names
the ones that they give me [anyway]
but after hanging up I wonder
if it was actually artificial intelligence
I was talking to

maybe I give them too much information
or maybe my answers are hogwash
figments of my own
intelligent imagination
ones that keeps digressing
[or so they tell me]
into potential self-destruction

raising the bar

the classroom is full but none
are allowed to raise their hand
and if you did well
that would be the end of that

outside the windows
the children can see a soccer field
and ball diamond
brand new colorful playground equipment
that none are allowed to use

day by day
and hour by hour
the microcosm’s adult population
continues to diminish
while the artificial intelligence
implanted into its youthful citizenry
continues to grow

do not be afraid of returning
if that is what you want to do
snapping fingers & singing
hallelujah baby hallelujah
there is joyousness
in the physical & the beyond
a mysterious balance of
mind memory & cosmic fantasy
exclusively brought to you
via the next best artificial intelligence
