You hear the crackle of a 2006 Sony Cybershot and encase it with your
several senses, until a blurry face becomes yourself, the little crawler, in a
spiderweb of glass
Chrrr…k…k..k….

ten flesh-?’s are a semiotic, yet very tangible reminder of primal
estrangement through societal bodyhood, with the mimetic approach to
true-you and the embarrassing amp that it goes thru

good thing you can make your body disappear by simply throwing fabric
over it! now give me the hand pants (or put me in an on-brand full body
bag)

feedback-fearing fingers linger over your lovers image, the image being
either just dots or just waves, depending on the shape of your eyes, state
of sensation, processor performance

down the O’s that end the pants: a sobbing noise. Hey, everything alright
in there- you pick a burdock off the cotton and long inside a leg, when,
just before you reach the cries, a shimmering round rolls out:
A puppy-sized rolly-polly, on whose polymer belly
your first own phone is clasped by a million ageless limbs

primeval slime dripping from the tips, you wipe your hands clean and try
to enter the PIN. If vermin lasts aeons in EWCM, how could four digits get
lost in a pretty head?
