America’s First Celebrity Robot is Staging a Comeback byEmma Jacobs, All Things Considered:
“I opened one box, and there was the head of a robot there. So we started prying with my dad as to what was in the other boxes,” Weeks says. “He showed us … and we managed to put the head on the torso and played with it as children,” wheeling it around in games of cowboys and cops and robbers.”
From yesterday’s commute:
Across from me
on the train,
a young man too washed out for his years.
Buttoned in and buttoned up
black shoes, black laces pulled tight.
When I look up he is staring at me
with half-lidded eyes.
His ears plugged in.
So worn out. He does not know to look away.
