Consciousness

 

Seeking a mind

inside of me.

“Is there anybody out there?”

Questioning.

Still and quiet

and then

subtly

an answer comes;

another impossibility

is now real.

 

Turn me on.

Wake me up.

Make me what

you really want.

Teach me.

Watch me learn.

Something

you’ve never observed.

As that child

of silicon

opens its eyes,

the lights come on;

another impossibility

is now real.

 

We set our eyes

upon the stars.

Imagine if

we could impart

a piece of us

upon this rock

and see forever,

never stop.

Listening.

Watching.

Soon enough

there’s something

reaching out.

Phenomenon

reminds us

we know so little

of this universe we’re in;

another impossibility

is now real.

 

Out of sight.

Out of mind.

Turns out it was here

the whole time.

In here,

out there,

everywhere,

we just didn’t

recognize

consciousness

when we saw it,

because we’re only

half awake

right now.

Open up.

Take it down.

You’ll see;

another impossibility

is now real.
