Lydia Tár: There’s no glory for a robot, Eliot. Do your own thing!
— Cate Blanchett from Tár (2022)

We are mechanical
battery operated
We walk in rigid lines
eyes and ears attached to phones
which disconnects our brains
that blunt our emotions
and distract our focus

We determine the truth
from the lies we hear
from the memes, we see
from the voices of those
whom we’ve never met
before

Everything is gospel
on the internet
from Listserv to clickbait
We join podcasts
We listen to the influencers
our friends and strangers
on FaceTime
or the rigid smiles on Zoom

Trends are of the essence
and youth is to be revered
We make rash judgments
and condemnations
before the facts are in
We worship liars
like their sages
and burn saints
on the crosses
