Shed the Flesh

shed the flesh
molt and mechanize
hide, hibernate, expand
colonize the self
metamorphose and rupture

transcend the biological
put a stop on evolution
dissolve the physical
become alkaline

be the mind
wired and uploaded
enlighten to hardware
trade sarcopenia and arthritis
for oxidation and obsolescence

update or be deleted

soon drones your android clone:

Meet my maker
Stan the Rusted Man

He's off ...
to be salvaged and re-purposed
may he exist forever

This was not the "transcend the flesh" poem I'd expect from you; uploading your consciousness into a technological automaton is quite a sci-fi idea! Update or be deleted, indeed. Poor Tin Man.

Haha ... you, smarty pants. You got the chemical name reference:) Thank you, Victor:)

Nice writing, and yes it is easy to become obsolete these days, when you don't keep updating!!

So true ... here is to frequent updating:)
