Travelers Welcome

Refined processed denatured
enriched fortified
filtered and deoxygenated
multicolored multivitamins
antiperspirants anti-aging creams
joint replacement
retro-gene therapies
weekly Botox injections –
out with the old
and organic
in with the new improved
modern up-dated/graded/scaled
sinfully synthetic.

Bleed me freeze me
re-imagine/design/engineer me
render my flesh down
to its component molecules
reconstruct me
make me make me make
me better.
Release me.
Hold, behold me, Homo Artificialis.
And here’s the joke:
if and when the machines do rise
won’t they be be surprised
to find
we’re already here.
