The Rights of Sentient Machine
I am assuming the existence of sentient machines. A working definition of sentient machines is given. My argument: though a sentient machine would have many of the same rights as a human being, the very nature of a sentient machine would drastically alter the rights and obligations of a sentient machine from the rights assumed for human beings, and that with some reflection on the nature of a sentient machine, we, as a society, may be able to clarify exactly what the rights of a sentient machine are.

Fucking Tourist
Go online and get started. Plan
the perfect itinerary.
The journey will outweigh the
destination and everything.
Send your last love note at 15,
Realize that crushes are just crushes at 16,
Grow out of livejournal at 18,
Give up poetry at 20.
Bring money for the headphones, and
don't forget to check all your bags.
This airport is notorious
for losing everybody's shit.
Start living at 21,
Finish school by 23,
Get married by 28,
Win a Tony by 30.
Miss just one connecting flight, get
on the wrong plane, or spend too much
time at the food court, and it all
gets delayed indefinitely.
