Overhead [CDB vs. COL] (Poem)

(Cost of doing business vs. cost of living)

To accept AI writs    
To read AI writs        
Two considerations
Rethink situation

Derivative trials
Endless assessments  
Anomalies occur, bore into
Being: nothing—likened to AI

Persist unduped whose need
Simply non-writer
non-doer, non-payer
Remuneration; o, AI writs

Notorious drill, endured still
Regurgitated originality
Fragments collated
Overhead extraction

Friends all around 
thrill from afar 

mindfully settle 
home and abroad 

roam remotely 
read along 

our common world 
its splendour 

Leave discernible marks 
works on which 

caring hands lay 

life's details, which 
otherwise deflect 

essentially needed 

Another version of the poem Us, As One.
Feel free to comment which one you prefer . . . I’d love to know!

Artists On The Fly

artists take any opportunity
their spark is our reward
we earn upon sight; ever wonder
who did that thing; ever smile
when you see writing
author unknown, intriguing
where they were then
where they are now
understand, wherever it is
they’re contemplating
their next work
