Plato’s Digital Cave


The wide-eyed, non-talking heads stare through the glass, proud of the color and shape of their hair. What goes on behind them, stays behind them. Thirteen heads. The bodiless figures need no supper. The last view?
Two of the heads outside the mainframe whisper.
Ms. Orwell, “Democracy is conformity.”
Ms. Huxley, “There will be no new world, and besides it wouldn’t be brave anyway.”
No head looks up, not for sunshine nor when rain smatters the glass.



“Well-written banalities
by titled authorities
thru media agencies
of controlling minorities
hide key realities
and viable possibilities
from disillusioned majorities.”
Dartwill Aquila



The West Bank is now the Judea-Samaria area.
