We tried to await the singularity
—Patient and kind—
We were going to upload our minds into the global consciousness and
Talk forever
Did you hear the one about the old couple and the Internet?
We were going to spend eternity tracing 
the shape of your 
mind with my mind My 
mind with your mind we
could be insatiable
To know the universe
Inside our infinite selves

But fate was neither patient nor kind 
Yet a joke
Did you hear the one about the widow?
So I will spend the rest of this life tracing
The negative space
Where your mind met my mind
And wondering what it means to explore
The universe
Uncertain how it all still feels so
