"agora" by Matthew Yates


by Matthew Yates

it might be enough –

at the corners of the sky

where the simulation’s seams

start to show where if one watched

long enough they could see a vee

of geese disappear into code

& slip into the ether where on

a rainy day you can see the tempest

buffer & if you throw yourself into

the right wind at the right time

you might sail into disintegration –

it might be enough

to be a simulated thing,

for life to be a sky

that you can touch,

because if you watch anything

long enough you

start to feel watched

& it might be enough

to seem to be seen
