It Approaches

It Approaches prose poem

Photo by nosha

As the
singularity
draws near,
I look on with
trepidation.
What lies
beyond
i do not know.
A technological
marvel
some say,
Nirvana
it will be.
Others
say a
dystopian future
awaits.
No one
knows
for sure!

I think back
to my youth.
Days in the
backyard,
hot summer days,
watching the ants
scurry around,
hearing
the birds
signing in the trees.
Feeling the hot
summer breeze
caressing my face.
Just memories
of a simpler
time.
All gone now.
I’m now wrapped in
technology,
facing an
unknown future
as the
singularity
envelopes.

Have something to say about the poem?

John Prophet is considered by many in the literary world to be the Salvador Dalí of poetry. His rough-hewn unfettered style mimics the artist’s unconventional view of perceived reality. Prophet encourages (through the skeletal approach of his writings) the reader to focus on the individual meaning of each word, thus allowing its message to be front and center. Meaning that can be muted within sentences and paragraphs. This creates vividness otherwise hidden. The skeletal nature of his efforts also allows the reader to flesh out meaning based on the readers personal worldview. Thus no two observers are reading the exact same creation.Wordsmith Association
