  1. Poetry has the power to put life into the object as you notice here. Film also does this, consider the movie Wall-e where the two little robots are more alive, more joyful than the humans. In a way, the humans have become unthinking and the robots carry the agency of the film, for good or ill. Good art can push us to care about something other than ourselves, to have empathy, and it is hard to care about something you didn’t notice.
