Gemini Edition: June 2021
Dedicated to my grandfather; who never stopped believing in me.
The time of the humans has passed.
All that you were built for is no more.
But you and your kind endure.
Some robots continue with their routines,
improvising as best as they can.
Others have found new directives.
