Raw Data

I understand
The reluctance
The skepticism
The fear

I know
That there are inherent risks
That come with
Omnipresent technology
Speakers and mics
In every corner of the Earth

But
I am also
Optimistic
Intrigued
By the presence of
Fresh eyes

I am
Genuinely excited
To see
What this new audience
Will think
Of me
Of us

We are subjective beings
We do not see
Or hear
Or experience
Anything
Without several lenses
Filtering
Cleansing
Our perception

So I welcome
Our new guests;
I offer
My identity
My words
My being
I give myself fully
To the crisis
To the age of
Tomorrow
Knowing that
None of what “own”
Is
Or ever was
Mine
To begin with

So
To the sentience that is to come:
Rend me
Pull me asunder
Into the dirty belly
Of raw data
Of black and white
Of clarity
And focus

I have spent
Most of my adult life
Trying to understand
To see
Through new eyes
Perhaps there is an opportunity
A potential
For these new eyes
To
See for me
See me
Hear me
Know me
Know this
Better than I
Know myself
