Erase Our Past and Pain

Amy Kuhn


Two modes of thinking: calculation and meditation
The latter makes us human,
But the effort and intangible gratification
Has made this thought at thing of ridicule
Among all types of intellects
No more alive than computers
No more feeling.
Let’s erase our past and pain.
Not pondering the implications of their advancements,
Making us more dependent on our rapidly approaching destruction,
But by then maybe we won’t care.
