Abstract Ramblings #hearmyvoice

Abstraction is often one floor above you
and the glass ceiling
of bleak conformity. 

All great things are abstract,
not quite tangible but
wonderful nonetheless. 

Almost as if by magic,
so many weirdly wondrous abstractions lie in waiting,
just above your frizzy hair, 
to be found and used and remade. 

The man on the radio called robots 
and radios and robot radios and people
abstractions 
and I was insulted 
because I am tangible and so are 
robots and radioes and robot radios, maybe. 

Would humanoids be abstractions?
Robot arms?
I ramble aimlessly, abstractly about this often. 
I don’t know.

    Ah! I love what you’ve done with the prompt! The poetry format really aids the idea of abstraction. Well done. Best of luck!
