"I-Robot" is a fascinating and entertaining collection of poetry about robots and their relationships to humans. This unique compilation provides superbly crafted verse that takes on issues that are the subject of many a SciFi novel, film, and television episode. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, "I-Robot" is especially recommended to anyone who has every contemplated the role of robots and artificial intelligence in our lives and in our culture, now and in the future. 'Scary Robot Lullaby': Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep little/robot and dream rotten dreams of rotten flesh/that will never, ever be yours. Close your eyes,/close your eyes, imagine you have closed/your eyes. There's an end to the sentence./Power down. Softly, power down. Of being/a robot. Of being a robot no more can be said/than sleep is a natural state. Pretend sleep is a natural state. Shhhh. Now go to sleep.
