Um-welt

Today I wanted to try something different: prose poem (vs. free form), and response to a word from a TED Talk (vs. Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day).

When he says umwelt, I hear veldt, and I’m transported to the wilderness of Final Fantasy, Gau leaping through threshes bursting into grasslands rolling onto hills bumping into mountains rising up-to outerspace, where our cyborg future metamorphs our experience of reality by stretching our umwelt wide, enormous as a water balloon building, bursting on the faucet adapter.

Do you also play retro video games?

If you connected with the 1990s JRPG references I made in this one, consider two of my other online projects:
