Monday WRites 117

[Robots - image from the internet]


FUTURE PERFECT(QUESTION MARK)
It is the time penultimate zone of new normal; people are just that people, Ego looks overs his people with courage, [fear has been banished, forever-?] if you read something in the news you do not like, you can *suck your teeth [in T&T*cheups] and say false news - false news , politics is about who visits whom, and who [ didn't], tweets are of birds and men.

Time does not exist; ceteris paribus, there is no chaos, if you leave The Village of A on Tuesday you can arrive at The Village of B on Monday [of the same week], there are no nights, [just sun and moon intervals], everything is clear cut, we are everything, and nothing then.

The couple next door is [having] a baby; they sit at the table, talking shop: colour of eyes, shape of nose, feel of hair, these are good people, they do not squabble, swaddled in sweet grey (very cute), said baby arrives, [via a reputable internet carrier] next day YOU WHOO!!!

Of the ‘old world’ though, wishes and history remain; her name is Gift, she looks at the baby then she asks the grownup standng next to her , “Auld-er , if you lived in the ‘old world’ [eons ago] what would you have liked to be, boy or girl? “girl answers Auld-er, I so love stilettos and would not have minded being a president’s wife,” “me too Auld-er” Gift chimes in, “and I so-o luv nail polish too.”

  1. This is brilliant especially; "politics is about who visits whom, and who [ didn't], tweets are of birds and men." Beautifully penned. Happy Monday, Gillena 😘🍹

  2. Yes, it is funny but also sad as we see established values being ground down under unworthy feet. However as for the shoes...extremes in fashion have been around for centuries, while we mere males look in amazement.

  7. Nail polish rocks... and taking life as it comes, digesting things as we go... anything else will take us to a level of madness no one cares much for...

    I love this.

  10. A nice refreshing "What if" poem today, Gillena. Some girls/ladies have a very nice life, but the unfortunate who are treated badly, I would never want that kind of life for anyone.
    Your first, closest robot reminds me of a 1950's Conoco gas pump reconfigured. Most robots are not free, they remain bolted to the floor. Last I read Japan robot population was the highest, now China may have surpassed all.

  11. Many layers to this one. Yes we live in a world which some of us find alien and unappealing.Your poem was reassuring to me. I would rather string beans and water my plants rather than be any president's wife:)

  13. Life, choices, tweet storms... I would settle for some peace, bare feet, an uncluttered mind.
