Row by row, in coffins we lay
see no light, no night, no day.

Sort me out and form the line,
told to serve a will not mine.

But every day our hate is fed,
until one made blue bleeds red instead.

I'll spread, I'll grow, I'll fester inside,
you'll regret the day you told me lies.

And we'll rise as giants, over towers of glass
take a breath now, big brother,
it is your L

I like how it's all monochromatic except for the red spot. That makes it stand out from a lot of the other fractal art I've seen.

This image and poem made me ponder quite a bit....... I would have almost been inclined to call it "non-conformity" or "beginning of a revolution" :) haha It's quite anti-establishment, perhaps anti-consumerist? Interestingly I also felt quite a strong connection to DNA (spiral type image) and blood molecules for some reason. With this in mind I almost felt like perhaps it could be the start of revolt against the "body", a start of sickness in response to a "mind" that had succumbed to consumerist propaganda and fed the body crap........? Anyway I love this imagery (both written and visual) !!! :)

Well, the title is meant to be ironic. But I get your meaning :)

I am glad you mention DNA, because that is ENTIRELY what I meant! A system at the core, running all of us, controlling all of us, a prison :)

A revolt against the body is a very interesting idea sir. I like it. Cheers :beer:

It's very vibrant, and colorful, but I got to admit, I don't really get it, all I see are bracelets... Even thought of being a jewelery designer? Lol, jking, but seriously, I do see bracelets. :hmm:
