Exception Found Reboot Necessary

The first man-robot was lost,

unable to locate his position

inside the suit of armor.

The pieces of brain left in the neuroprocessor,

the mind of the metal man

(for if the soul exists, the brain

is its residence).

A sexta-core and the human brain,

firing and processing every possible variable


whether the suit should continue the journey.

So the metal man stands, lost inside

a recurving, revolving riddle,

the same riddle that plagued him

when he was only flesh.

      Thank you, Greg. I'm glad you enjoyed the piece. It's one of the older poems I found when going through my writings.

      Sankhajit, I greatly appreciate your comment. Thank you for taking the time to read my work.

      The imagery here, the visual that is created in my mind, tore at the gut and made me feel like it applies to all of us in the simple flesh. Nice piece, very thought-provoking.

      Thank you Lee. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

      I appreciate the feedback, John. It's one of the more experimental poems I wrote in terms of subject matter. I was on a sci-fi kick. Might have just gotten done listening to "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath.
