A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
Since I am headed
in that dreaded direction
of not hearing so well,
think what hell it would be
to grasp what someone is saying,
while listening to what
they are thinking, while trying
to hear myself. Here’s my advice:
Take the chips, salt them,
and see how they taste.
