Post insertion, for the first few days, I was aware of some discomfort at link-up,
As if a spider had nested in the centre of my brain, a slight bibliographic oscillation
Between left and right halves. But now I feel nothing. The nano-mechanism
Controlling my capability no longer troubles me. Thus, I am moved at once from
Human to Cyborg, neither creator nor created, but somewhere in between, the
Connect, a binary application, accessing a chain of written images that hum –
Inside my head.
With one smooth touch of bloodless android fingers, a hurricane
Of words downloaded directly into my synaptic-core, faster than the speed of
thought; I barely register their passage, barely acknowledge the unfurling
Story-line, the name of both hero and heroine an indifference to me, their dialogue
A blur of voices I have no need to hear. I waste no time on choice or consumption;
My eyes no longer move down those invisible pages – the App takes care of that,
Giving me immediate cerebral ingestion, learning without struggle; a truly easy read.
When my Synth* Remotes me, it calls me Wire Woman, says I have forgotten how
To feel, that I’ve erased the pleasure of words unfolding in the slow-moving caravan
Of sentences and paragraphs, each one vibrant with colour, the taste and scent and
Breath of life all pinned like once-bright butterflies upon the wood-smelling page.
This lack does not disturb me. Why would it? I have access to everything I need.
