The entrails of the machine are spilling in haphazard order
Across the allotted space of my desk
Silver, red and black coating hug the gold and semi-conductors

The heart of the machine, my machine,
is heatedly blinking to the wires of a careful and furious transfusion
It was surgically removed from the body that could no longer read it

We are performing a long overdue emergency operation-
First the data that does not quite transfer
Save the heart
then save the body,
Save the mind.

"you know, we are made of ugly things." "yes, but have you not heard? ugly is the new beautiful. like the way you always seem to pry at my thoughts and know what i'm thinking; the way you make me talk when i really don't feel like parting my lips and lying to you. it's just like the cyanide and razor blades i keep in my medicine cabinet, waiting for the day when i master the definition of defeat."

When I was young, so very, very young, I was deeply in love with fans, propellers, windmills. I remember having these tiny little miniatures in plastic, with the most biting colour combinations; green-purple, red-yellow; and I'd just sit there, blowing, and merrily watch the fins swirl around. And when I first saw cogwheels and screws and crankshafts and eggwheels I floated amidst the gorgeous sorcery. I wanted to find out all about machines; how they where, through what and by which they stood, why they turned. What that meant. My father bought me a huge book, I read it. Didn't care about the text, I just looked at the pictures ov

Just me.
You always say that nothings ever good enough but you need to stop comparing me Because: I'm not her. I'm not him. and I can't be what you want me to be. I struggle, ad I struggle to find that perfect place that's just mine. But I know that if I do nothing will ever been good enough for you. I'm not her. I'm not him. and I can't be what you want me to be. I can only ever be just me. Some nights I wander, wondering if I'll ever be good enough. But as I look upon the sky there's nothing there asking for me to change. So I'll just realize that I can only ever be just me. Because, I'm not her. I'm not him.
