SELF-PORTRAIT

 
 
 

Self-portrait
This is what I’m feeling. Fall of 2018.

THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FUTURE I SEE
AND THE FUTURE I LIVE

WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO BE, WHO TO BE WITH
THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS GUIDE THE WAY THAT I LIVE
TONIGHT I’M SEARCHING IN MY PROFILE HINTS OF MY SOUL
BETWEEN THE THINGS THAT I SEE
AND THE THINGS IN THE CLOUD
THE THINGS IN THE DARK THAT CREATE WHO WE ARE
THE INVISIBLE FORCES THAT SHAPE HOW I SEE
MY TASTE AND MY FEELINGS
AND THE WAY THAT I THINK THE THINGS THAT I SAY
AND THE WAY THAT I SPEAK
MY LOVE AND MY SPIRIT AND THE SHADE OF MY SKIN
IS THAT REALLY ME?

IT TOOK ME A WHILE
TO LOOK LIFE IN THE FACE AND TO LOVE IT FOR WHAT IT IS
SO NO, I WON’T PUT IT AWAY
I WILL MAKE A COPY OF MY BRAIN AND UPLOAD IT TO THE INTERNET
AND YES, MY SOUL WILL BE GONE BUT A REAL PART ME WILL STAY
AND YES, THAT STILL WILL BE A FUTURE VERSION OF MYSELF

I’M CURIOUS, I PLAY WITH SPACES
I DREAM OF FUTURES OF ENHANCEMENTS
DIGITAL SOULS IN CODE AND EMOTIONS
TEXTURES MIXED WITH LIGHTS AND CULTURES
ONE REALITY IN DIFFERENT ART FORMS

I’M SAYING WE NEED IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES BECAUSE
WE HUMANS NEED TO FEEL MORE
ONE SENSE IS NOT ENOUGH ANYMORE

YOU ASKED ME TO PRESENT MYSELF
YOU ASKED ME SHOW ME WHAT’S INSIDE MY HEAD

I’M JUST ANOTHER HUMAN TALKING INSIDE YOUR SCREEN
I’M JUST ANOTHER HUMAN TRYING TO CREATE THE UNFORESEEN.
