getting more and more like a goldfish every day

maybe next life i come back as an elephant

this thing about memory, what was it?

is it worth the trouble of seeing into things

if the things can see right back into you?

a person needs privacy and space

a machine thinker on the other hand

i can't remember what i was going to say

captchas want to know if i'm a robot yet

i want to ask them if they're a person yet

somewhere along the fine line of our mutual being

i can't remember what i was going to say

i'm an elephant in the room lit by goldfish lava lamps
