So about this next bit. Well, it wasn't planned at all, but I added another android to the story line. They will play an important role in how Ashley and Allen reunite, which yes, I have already written in my head.
I am going to explore that age old question:
Who will save man, or woman, when she loses her humanity? Will
they save themselves?
I don't want my answer to be such a fucking downer like some sci-fi novels, short stories, movies, and shows. You know what I'm talking about.
So, here it is: The Harvest
On a totally random note, I just discovered Rupi Kaur and was informed about the plagiarism conflict or alleged plagiarism with another Tumblr poet. I am a noob when it comes to Tumblr poetry. Regardless, I was introduced to Rupi Kaur by my U.S. Latin American students, and I have to say that I like how she reads and performs. Young people seem to really like her work.
On page the poems may seem obvious and oversimplified, but I like her work.
My friend and poet Todd Heldt, who is not an internet sensation, yet, but has published a number of books created a contest on Facebook to spoof Kaur's poetry. Of course, as a woman of color, I was deeply offended. But as someone who likes to have fun, I created the following and am hoping to win the coffee cup prize.
(Rupi Kaur, if you are reading this, which is 100% unlikely, I think you are an amazing woman and an accomplished writer. Respect.)
Have fun today. #Resist (Respect all poets.)
