Parallel Processing (Once Upon a Time When)

This was originally two columns with the two versions of the story on different sides, but I have no idea how to do that. This is meant to make you think of a certain philosophical cat (not Derrida’s, but another great thinker’s).

Kisses were particles

Hellos were waves

We are both

We are neither

So we are light

I hear roommate footsteps

On the words

Wipe your paws please

Should we say hello

Should we say hello

Nope he doesn’t exist

If he does

We don’t

Know

Above our heads

On the inside of your comforter

Stars stick

Where are we

Language also is for cats

We don’t make human-

Normative remarks here

What are we

Not kisses

Not hellos

Just

Electromagnetic

Meows.

Kisses were particles

I hear roommate probability-steps

on each word

Wipe. Your. Paws. Please.

Should we say kiss

Should we say hello

Nope he doesn’t meow

If he waves

We don’t

Know

Above our heads

On box’s interior

Stars stick

Where are we

Language also is for cats

What are we

Don’t make human-

Normative remarks here

What are we

Not kisses

Not hellos

Just

Electromagnetic

Poison.
