"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.”


The glint of the metal orb propped
in place of her eyeball
glittered its chrome sheen to the sun

our empty bodies stood
watching as her eyes spread,
eagle,
to our collected crowd
the vague hem of her skirt
catching wind as it breaks the stillness
enveloping the mass

and we fan ourselves,
watching the dystopia revolution
taking place as she waves her hands in a caught breeze,
a yawn escapes the mouth of an onlooker to my right
a blast falls off in the distance
no doubt,
a bomb in the hemisphere

the heat wavers drearily to ninety
the sweat collects in a pool in my palm
“Meet,” she says
“Your new days.”

Behind her,
machinery pumps its way into orbit
She tilts the gems in her mouth
into a magnetic smile
“Say hello.”

A little ditty on the advancement of technology, I suppose.
