realism, by sascha engel

They say there’s too much
Content in my head. That I can’t
Focus on the fleeting moments
On which I’m supposed to focus.
Too many lies and Youtube
Videos and memes of cats.

Yet it seems doubtful
That contemplation is a necessary
Condition for articulating
An inner life. Isn’t being
Pushed out of one’s own head
Also a valid sensation?

It’ll be vital for an
Embodied A.I. to replicate
The feeling of being evicted
From your own head. How else
Will it be able to understand
The human condition?
