Cardboard & Cinnamon

A poem Mac posted on Posthuman Blues, 2003...

"Caffeine laughter 

Julia sets 
(anomalous magnetism) 
Captured on film 
(we study reports) 
Acres of glass, 
Imitation marble 
Raw squid 
and infomercials 
Hyperoxygenated blood: 
more durable memory 
Rorschach calligraphy / 
Thinking machines 
No, truly thinking 
(aware of quantum manifestions) 
Why don't we all meditate 
on the singularity 
Or 
Small Gray men 
(suits of reptile flesh, 
cardboard and cinnamon)"

-Mac Tonnies, 2003
