the autumn of metaphors

The Autumn of Metaphors is an illustration for poetry Delfina. Here is an excerpt:

“The boundary between the living
and the mechanical is indistinct.
Humans become robots when their anima dies,
although they might pass the Turing Test.

“And the living who see themselves
as androids, cold inside, might suddenly find
their heart is burning.

“The songs of your heart are yet to be sung.”
