maybe we are not

every once in awhile,

every once in awhile,
we get a peek at
the future
of work
, comforted
by the thought
that machines will
still need us –
to dream
because we will
need sleep,
to think creatively
because life
is short

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: machines


if the universe

if the universe
were a packaging machine,
would we have a say
in how we were picked up,
folded and flipped, traversing
axes we only read about
in engineering
textbooks, so that
when you and i bump
into one another
in the middle of
grand central, time
is meant
to stand still, nothing
breaks, and no one
calls for the job setter
