New Age Transfusion

 

 

A digital transfusion

has overrun the senses

flooded Time, innocent Time

set fire to the mind

 

Transformed organic into synthetic

Replaced vein for wire

Traded organ for circuit

Substituted blood for liquefied electricity

Switched bone for silver conduit

 

Freedom itself is altered

Changed systematically

into myriad programs of control

Metacognitive processes

shot down, corrupted

 

These ancient files

permanently erased

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where Vision is Drawn

 

 

The Form, built up in

the center of Vision

Let us plasticate our reality

so it cracks easily with

the pleasures of time

Dead in Fake Life and

Alive in Plastic Death

 

Skip languidly and

awkwardly to the next

propped up vision

A new carbon copied

maniacal mystery

 

The Eye is unmoved by Reality

 

It prefers to lie with the

Harlot of Shadow
