Adjusting our antennae
what length will the waves of continuum require?
Will smiles ever again evade
our angered overload and distortion
our tears that slowly dissolve connections?
Can this new means
this universal transmission
merge emotions with
avoid destruction by fire
allow flame to alight candles of hope
not infernal machines of hate?
Will the mountain stream
continue to carry the simplicity of
leaf-sail atop bark-boats of innocence
floating child-like imagination
into man's unquenchable ocean of mind?
Will orbiting satellites
someday conjoin arcing auras of Nature?
When can be a long time
for Ones and Zeros aspiring
to be of Man's nature
Can such digits ever tell us
how near the Singularity truly is
that point where all parallel lines meet
the point where a measured variable
reaches immeasurable or infinite value
that moment beyond which technological progress
will become incomprehensively rapid and complicated?
And if such movement be resolved
does man's moral compass
Life's antennae continues adjusting
but what direction?
