Word on the Street
sends a signal, like an ignited flare
in a Volkswagen Beetle can get someone's
attention. It's in the details. A year
and a day ago a hiker photographed a bear
before it killed him. If you can gauge the mood
of a crowd while thinking about being human,
so can a robot. All the world is pretending
to work. Don't open the door. I just want
to be alone with my shirt. 50,000 body cameras
record everything that the cameras point at.
I just got here. 400 years from now someone
will spell your name in jewels. Rub it in your
crowd. Thrill is a real issue.
