Markov chain divination

An entirely new you
Pieced together from salvage
Hormone mimicking petroleum products
Synthetic skull slush plasma
Disease undying

Your palm misprint readings suggest
Offloading will to predictive text
The stars compel you to seek
An ancient buried river carrying fossil water
Foretold by autocorrect

Your nude face with active contour modelling
Oozes snakes in every crevice of polyhedral space
Though you have fooled the computer vision
Into recognizing you as a toilet
Egomotion will ensure you are always made to feel seen

Your job is to infuse contextual meaning
Into artworks made by paint on an electric toothbrush
Into nightmares dreamt unto liquid crystal by algorithms
Into your own words retranslated from a different language by software
Into this trivial poem


Anchor on oil spill

On the tyre swings under the desiccated trees
Where I first rammed with subterfuge
The lies I told to steal free drinks
Arrows fused with lumbar sections
Spread like exposed rebar fanning
Drinks mix with concrete & spinal fluid
As I bend down to pick up the pieces
And there is no way back to grace
