By Carl Scharwath

I should never have come here
Yes, the fortuneteller was mistaken

The humans, a vague meagerness
Life form bowing to the oath of lords

When man evolved into a semi-machine
Peering into the abyss of the absurd

In a vision of radiation towards a
Dreamscape of artificial intelligence

The day again turned on its slow wheel
Affirming shadows by denying them.
