[By repurposing the antique format of a pastoral singing competition (Theocritus, Virgil’s Eclogues) into a fictional meditation on current AI heuristics, this piece addresses the ageless tension between thought and realization, between concept and production. The main action depicts a stubbornly indirect creative process: while the ineffectual “prompts” never satisfy the characters, they do frustrate them into further development. The setting is temporally ambiguous, suggestive of enduring problems and inexorable change coexisting.]
