  1. I feel like this sometime as well. I seem to be on one track nowadays. I feel like I am operating on my inner robot nowadays. Auto pilot is easier than thinking oftentimes. One step. Another step. Keep moving robotically through the days. I really DO like this poem a lot!

  2. This is gorgeously rendered, Kim! ❤️ Especially love; “I fill a tumbler with water from the tap, struggle first to turn the knob, and now I’m mesmerised by sparkling bubbles in the gush.” 🙂 Congratulations on having your poem published on the Visual Verse! ❤️

  3. Oh, the images your words brew into being, Kim! I especially love the effect of reading the poem while looking at the facial expression of the cyborg. Something in the eyes, in the curb of the mouth, in the tilted head… says, “dead fish and sailors” and so many feels.

  4. My inner robot can be helpful at times, but often robs me of focusing on the present moment. Love this poem! I can see why it was selected by Visual Verse. Congratulations.

  5. I love the idea of the brain being full of dead fish and sailors. Makes me pay attention to my own “automatic pilot.”
