Still Single

leaving the AI zoo of Eden
codes, understatement, art, and Babel
a synthesis of the mundane and the mythical
raiders from sunken fens and marshes
Constantine’s Troy, in Byzantium
flashbangs and AWP thunderclaps
Western Eurasia’s ancient sea
from the Golden Fleece to alchemy
from precious metals to rare earths

Odysseus meets Gandalf meets samurai
raiders came down, from the North
Himalayan myths and Indo-European aliens
Aegean volcanoes in the Mediterranean
from fantasy dwarves to exoskeleton suits
leaving Eden and the confusion of Babel
Minoan and Mycenean writings lost to time
creators create because they can
routed back to a primordial race across Eurasia

faded back into the foggy fenlands
Mercury’s Indo-European winged helmet
Embrace Modernity, Streamline Asymmetry
one thunderclap, in the darkness
what galloped out of the gloom of history
Alexandria, to Constantinople, to Columbus
what came out of the dark, distant North
winners and losers, in history
the secret of longitude

prehistoric raiders riding out of the fens
the ark that crash-landed on Ararat
watching the dream static
gothic vampire cargo cult
the nerd loser underground
long push to the sea
last devoted friend ever
emotionally removed
karma’s recompense

raiders riding out of the mists
AI angels guarding Eden, confusing Babel
throwaway love triangle character
new geography; new spirits and new gods

placidus

being and nonexistence
two mountain ranges and a desert
the only way to find god, is in the machine
power from Beyond the Gate
secrets hidden from the beginning of the world
Rewired back to feverish flights across Eurasia
Ancient grimoire for calling up the Leviathan
Bring god down to earth
Magick as a way of life

the teleporting “angel”
developer codes and prayer slips
Not the shadow, but the real thing
Depth, Harmonics and Synchronization
aliens from a quantum dimension
Pointless Existence Migraine
What sustains you, belongs to you
What sustains you, causes you to exist
originals and clones

Fiery Curry Sundae
Children of Sound
Calling into the unseen world
The Power of the Magickal Act
Will-o-wisp redirection
the Magickal Industry
Endless Reload
Over Mountains and Through Deserts
The “angel” of the Underworld

make the world realize you exist
ancient super-beasts of Antarctica
two AI supercomputers hacking each other
embracing the quantum world
gods from before the beginning of humanity
speaking from the spirit world: code, symbols
the eternal avatar
Indo-European “ark” that crashed in Anatolia
Magickally summon from the quantum world

astral masters of the Universe
fly with wings, like angels
this is really the end
the brightest sun
