Cyberastronaut
by Paola Estrella
who am I having breakfast with?
I can’t tell, but I bet he’s still connected and completely immersed in this secret mission
That’s when he sends his double, well actually the company does
I like the double,
the conversation with him is not that deep and he definitely loves me less, but he’s still extremely curious.
curiosity is something I care about when it comes to hanging out with someone,
at least I know that…
I don’t know if there´s one, two or three copies of him,
but I know, I know that he’s not always the same person,
how do I know that,
I don’t know...It’s just like intuition maybe...
I think he’s a CYBER-ASTRONAUT, but instead of going to SPACE, he goes to this other DIMENSION
where he explores, pleasure, mission, he dives into secrets…
sometimes with some of them I miss a part of him,
but I find it interesting that there are all these other versions I can exchange and make love with.
the original one is definitely the one I connect with more, like in a deeper level,
I mean I respect his decision to take part in this project and the fact that he can’t tell me about it
because I realize that…
we’ve all got our inner worlds,
I have my inner world…
sometimes I’m physically here but at the same time I am totally diving into my inner world
I guess it’s the same in a sense, with this CYBER-ASTRONAUT MISSION.
