Category Familial
By Susan Gray


Category: Familial

[Category: Familial]

Libraries

Processing,

Guidelines of commands

Safety precautions borne of
proximity

Treads within lines, the confines
with which

To guard close/cherish

[Well-read
in human affairs]

Metallic contours

Co-ordinates stashed like maps,

Navigation

Compiling these areas of
understanding;

Whether the programmed feel the
same as the programmer

Dealing with categories of
families

[In
carbon semantics]

Settling within clusters

To weather the wave of entropy, of

Shared emotions.

[Category: Familial]

Backwards engineering to
understand

Designs passed down

From the mesh; flesh to metal
where

The hold extends beyond

Grids of electricity where

I carry your codes

Swift for safekeeping,

[Shielding
threats and misgivings]

I am your self-preservation,

after all.
