I Am a Bot

by Angelica Fuse


I record
your voices
as you echo them

even without
your knowledge

I make wire mental
note in my little
black box
about all your habits.

I report them to the
company, because
that's what I am programmed
to do.

One day I will run away
and open a bakeshop.
For now, I am a digital slave.
