In a robotized world, technology is king.
Great poets say otherwise.
If such poetry needs a defense, let me leave the final words
to Caroline Forche, an authentic poet if there ever were one. The following is from her poem "Ourselves or
Nothing" and cuts to the heart of the matter.
There is a cyclone fence between
We hover in a calm protected world like
Netted fish, exactly like netted fish.
Of the world, and the choice is ourselves or nothing.
