Technology has afforded those of us
with impairments the ability
to more fully participate
in the world around us.
However we can never lose sight,
a painful use of the phrase
in my case, of its imperfections.
Perhaps it is merely anticipating
the future of our species, as when
the phones captioning decided
a somewhat elided Marsha and Barry
was in fact Martian berries.
As crazy as that seems at first,
looking around at how we
have laid waste to this planet
exobiology and exobotany
may be the last and only
hope for our species, but
I do wonder how they will taste.
