The Link


a gift or a bane


With thoughts simply neurons,

case structure our brains


Is humanity destined

to merely plug in


Will all beauty and truth

be a programmer’s whim


And what of our history

that starts to rewrite


Will all paradox suffer,

conversation contrite


From Plato to Sartre,

one thing is the same


The essence of man

—will a mystery remain


(St. David’s Pennsylvania: March, 2021)
