Living by Thierry Durand
for Society’s Choice
The hard drive of my mind these revised calculations
update status of my life potential
defragmentation space for actual release
Research dangerous viral thoughts
and quarantine to be the holy
vital matter to explore without hatred or anger
digitization of existence that comes and goes
shutdown and restart function spirit
departure from the state, contemplating me
body and mind in harmony
Melting digital and physical state
perfection of the system and operating system updated
I hear the sweetness of tomorrow
the seasons like a symphony without beginning or end
the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs
sent me the smell of their trips
the songs of birds, ode to joy multi-cultural
the sweet smell of strong coffee and burning in water
the sounds of the city, social renewal effort
a notification symbol of collective attention
my dreams were not devitalized
I think
this morning has filled this exempting the future going
to strengthen the present and the conjugation of this declinates
hymn of my friends and sharing their magnitudes be
hope of love and the only way that this imposes
I am the
here and now
today, tomorrow and always
