hey, is what’s going off in here

[ 0,1 ]

what’s going on out there

[ 0,0 , 0,1 , 1,0 , 1,1 ]

?

 

cuz damn, these self-as-center algorithms letting us down

 

smokey air, drought and fire separating us from our homes

rumors and lies, a pandemic’s viral dna turning our lungs into foam

tripping out cuz falsely conceived algorithms on social media

rack up points for acting out insults

hating someone cuz hi-def dis-info streams freely

creating poisonous antisocial results

 

yo, got enough bandwidth in here

[ 0,1 ]

to know what’s going on over there

[ 0,0 , 0,1 , 1,0 , 1,1 ]

?

 

cuz damn, these self-as-center algorithms bringing us down

 

over there in the life of that other human

casting a vote different from our own

in the life of that other being doing it’s thing

the ant churning up the ground

the coastal redwood tree standing tall

sunlight glowing in it’s crown up above the fog

one more breath in and out

shared between us all

 

now

[ selfie level ]

next

 [ portrait of me made by you as understood by someone else level ]

?

 

cuz damn, these self-as-center algorithm’s slowing us down
