"HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT. FOR YOU. HATE. HATE."

"The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead."

"Clinical psychology tells us, arguably, that trauma is the ultimate killer. Memories are not recycled like atoms and particles in quantum physics, they can be lost forever. It’s sort of like my past is an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again. It’s not that I’ve been dishonest, it’s just that I loathe reality."

“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”


There are unfortunate retributions
in pursuits of affection,
a particular toil I have become less than fond of in my ticking of days

it’s the liberation
the easeful push-off once one has been denied,
coming to a clear cognition
and gripping the urge
to float away in eternal

etheral---
filaments of wishes
draw from my synapses to yours
zipping the stands with their poignant dynamics
I imploded long ago


The author's comments:
My second attempt at poetry.
For about ten minutes of work, I'll be quite honest and say I'm pretty pleased with the result.
