the thrill of the unknown
simmering excitement fighting
the need for certainty.
The person you desire
may be a sterile product of this
day and age, when everything
is boiled down to a service
and people become commodities.
All you are, reduced to an
algorithm, mercilessly weighing
size, shape, colour and income
to find the perfect match, while
eliminating all chance for romance.
The algorithm cannot lie so it must
be you, who added some bits, that
don’t fit the perfect picture, don’t
add up eventually so Mr. Byte
won’t turn into Mr. Right.
