Random Poem:

the day after our brains are formatted for DVDs

We no longer face each other.
Homicide and suicide rates
continue to rise. Our
neighbours continue to

An inventor has claimed
he has a drug that
accelerates dementia.
Some have retreated
to the woods or formed
cults that regulate the
purging of information.
Mutism and insomnia are
at all time highs. Eye ball
removal has been
recommended by some
therapists. Self mutilation
or facial transplantation are
not uncommon. Undeveloped
countries note increased
