Rethink Modern Documentary

He was a matrix of numerous materials,
a mixture of pride and fear,
the proximity of silver,

the risk of diminution,
a preternatural affinity for flashlights.
Contradictions and incongruities

made him a suitable symbol of the age.
He'd instinctively play dead.
He liked the comfort it provided.

Cryptic Deathbed Discovery

We have to be realistic here.
As we go slinking from ledge to ledge, the legacy
of recent human evolution feels like an elaborate sham.

We have to be realistic here.
Regardless of the various twists and turns
their intentions were never really in question.

We have to be realistic here.
This is no time to make new enemies.
Let us die in peace, on our own terms.

Attack Casual Limits

In subterranean mines,
below the icy planet's surface,
we've reprogrammed human stem cells

into zombies, in all their top-down glory,
in countless configurations,
with defensive arsenals ranging from

third perspective shadow and dynamic depth of field,
to the potent ability to eradicate available sunshine,
all unique, all in stock and all free of charge.

Bleeding Extra Vegas

The Gulf Coast found itself in an odd
moment of my life. He understands
how weather works. But more

important, Terry was accurate.
After searching all night in
the oil. He was good on

TV, and they were about
to be right. The gulf. Was this the
life they wanted? The sea.

Ambitious Herders Report

In radio deserts where goats dig holes to puncture a
twilight nest, in some warehouse. To transport elite fish
whose tricky eggs think they might not be hatched. But the

murky ocean they steamed threatened nobody; even attempted
other unnamed relocations in radio deserts. Where goats dig
holes to puncture a twilight nest in. Some warehouse to

transport elite fish whose tricky eggs think. They might not
be hatched, but the murky ocean they steamed. Threatened,
nobody even attempted other, unnamed relocations.

Attention Not Experience

He rests his head on a pillow of tattered towels,
broken-down and rusting on a backstreet.
Taken by surprise, he ran out of everything,

a first-class nightmare coming true.
He leans back, closes his eyes, and wonders
how much more he can bear, new to this quiet desperation.

It stabs, burns, aches and throbs, gnaws at you,
knocks you for a loop. But, sooner or later
it all goes away. Unless, he's been told, it doesn't.
