“In the near future
Petrogenic tubes will allow us
To map each other’s hearts
And not in the sense of
Pulse, pressure, or saturation;
We will be able to translate “I forgot”
Into everything that was unsaid
And tease the edges of communion
Wrapping into ourselves.”
“You should have just returned my calls.
It’s a basic signalling game –
But this may be my favourite
Of all your fragile lies.”

Enjoyed this piece. Once we know each other’s secrets, will the mysteries of human existence be lost? We can wonder and imagine so many things.
Perhaps it would be lost, at least in part. Even when we manage to communicate accurately, there is so much substance in how we communicate that if we simply knew without speaking… It would be weird I guess!
