POEM: 'Data Transmission Networks On Heat'


DATA TRANSMISSION
NETWORKS ON HEAT
/ FRACTEL IMAGERY :
FRACTURED TEXTS


stairs are psychic,
their cult of violence
disfigures history

telephones ring
only discreetly,
perspire in free fall
and learn new dance steps

japanese cars
are cathedrals
preaching from
luminous showrooms,
their time-lapse photos
show cells of slime-mould

deserted garages
collapse into themselves
where the sunlight is different,
with gobs of tennis,
tides of femalos, and
stretches of beach that turn
pastel in time-lapse photos

stairs in free fall
collapse into themselves,
preaching from
disfigured cathedrals and
cults of telephone violence
which learn new dance steps
through data transmission
networks of
different
sunlight
