Got to listen to the data in the day to day...
Some data sets are easy to explore:
direction of the elevator and its current floor;
whether this kettle is whistling or not;
what I brought in my pocket — but what about what I forgot?
That’s a little difficult. I wish I had a robot
to calibrate perception and result. There’s a whole lot
involved. And I’ve got to make sense
out of this array before the set decays:
the oxygen load of every red cell in the system;
every single fanfiction ever written;
every bit of space dust and its velocity.
By the way, everything changes constantly.
But I’m pretty dedicated. I’ll collect it all.
Frontalot got a little optimism installed,
got it dialed to the wall, now I think I’m omniscient.
Data-driven to decision, I’m on a mission
to take a listen to the interrelationships
twixt every locus at which any datum sits.
Then, when comprehension prevails,
we’ll see how big it is: all in the details.
