Clickbait by Greg Santos

How might the human face look in 100,000 years?
I must keep telling myself, writing is lucky work.
Despite the headlines, life is good.
I like how the internet is starting to look.

Have you ever thought how many brains there are in the world?
I’m not just talking about humans.
For the love of God will someone please amuse me.
The city is quieter than you think.

You are a child in a house that is warm.
Climb larger and larger mental states.
You’re doing better than you think.
Still so in love.

Some may ask why.
It’s just something new to try.
Man explored the typewriter
ribbon and something clicked.
