Ex-Machina - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Ex-Machina
The big man,
a machine before cyberpunk
was robust, speaks of grander
and grander machines
churning out a conformiing
megalomaniac's tomorrow.
Our future in hands that
have no tactile sense,
which can only way gravity,
fades from red, white and blue
to bright greens in a world
without the Buddha. The Big man
grown large from chasing dragons
is so small on stage
bedecked in red - communal light
and a sense of awe
from those he could crush
in metallic palms. His grandeur
is wooden and size imaginary;
he is only as tall
as the stage which is upheld
by cheap shots and governing machines
oiled by hands they are cutting off.

Current Mood: curious curious

Indeed!
It was a good speech over all. I just didn't like the strings I saw and the cheap shots at the DNC.
Lame, lame lame.

Well, technically I live in Verona. Straight down Verona Road, exit 79, left turn, right turn, first left after bridge. 302 P. Heights Dr. to be unnecessarily specific. Good area. Good rent. Good job. Good girlfriend. etc. etc.
