Interior 64. Chris Kelly

We love to map our lives on geometry. Work is a grid of many discrete boxes. Play is the tangent refreshing the unpredictable impulse. Romance is a Venn diagram where overlap turbocharges the heart. Friendship plots to X and Y where the point of intersection undulates in the great sine curve of closeness. Aging is an arc bending towards infinity. Fibonacci numbers shape our thoughts into graceful proportions, an echo chamber of golden ratios. The fractals of enthusiasm bump against the paisley of tenderness. Euclid and Pythagoras made the body Earth’s measure, and Nature harmonizes our internal geometry.

Attempted Privacy. Jan 25, 2022

Inside your head is outside,

Spongy brain absorbing.

Data Central gives it a squeeze, a pinch and a tickle

Everyone owes everything always.

Every word scratches a digital trail

Server farms take but don’t give

Tapping thumbs chatter

A perpetual hail of data

Harvested, plucked, pounded and monetized.

They are hungry and ever listening

Siri, Bixby, Jarvis and Alexa

await your command

A databot knows no rest.

When was attempted privacy banned?
