High Susan

December 11, 2013

High Susan text from closed captioning on TV

The computer generates
closed captioning
on the TV screen as it spells
out the speaker’s
salutation.

But this goes in a different,
more captivating
direction
than a mere
“hi.”

Does the computer think Susan
is stoned, possibly to calm her
nerves before going in front of
the large TV cameras
aimed at her?

Or does the computer wish to
elevate
Susan to angellike,
to ascend this lowly
ground and
float above us as
wondrous inspiration?

Unfortunately, I’ll never
know. The computer,
as usual,
is a mysterious, hard-to-read
individual.
