Artifitootle Impictica

I hear a roar of distress

Sweeping the globe

Fury berserked (1)

Hope bleeding.

"Bombs bursting in air

Gave proof through the night"

That.......we are no longer there.

We are being smothered by NOISE

Bombarding our senses

Crunching our gut

Choking us in clogged peanut butter sounds

We are so gob-smacked with noise

That we no longer hear messages.

We yearn for silence, for a calming nothingness.

Physics tells us that there are many kinds of nothing

"an infinite number of ways

that Nothingness could kill us all" (2)

Annihilation seems imminent


Now comes an additional tsunami of noise

Some call it Artificial Intelligence, or A.I.

I call it Artifitootle Impictica.

From my previous voyages into A.I. lyrics,(3) music composition,(4) and paintings

I now venture into images made from words.

Tootle, I said (for we are on a first-name basis), picture "noise".

How about "many kinds of nothing"?

Or "Infinite Silence"?

Now let's remove the crutches of grammar. Show me how you see "fkptoru rkyjpfyp".

What does "Corinne Whitaker" look like to you?

(At 88? This noise is getting interesting.)

Before I could flutter my lashes

Or finish writing this article

Tootle was already turning words

Into videos.

I used to feel like a book, writing myself.

Who is writing me now?

Who is about to rewrite you?

Invite you

Into billions of splinters bursting in air?

It doesn't matter who pushes the red button

For you will not be there

To care. (5)
