Sonnet: Frisson My Ass Off

by John Kendall Hawkins

We are the little green people we've been waiting for...

The race is on to control men's* minds and souls --

our bodies we can do without at first --

it's the thing-in-itself that drives our thirst,

the hope diamond squeezed out of quantum coals,

being and nothingness, alive and not --

a viral version of forbidden fruit,

a magical stem cell we find at the root

of all possible past and future thought.

The body can be anything we want.

Let's go with photosynthetic exos --

fun, sun-loving people green as geckoes

with ichorous veins. F*ck Hegel and Kant.

Between one and zero is both -- you'll see:

The future is simultaneity.

* humans (I needed the syllable, sorry if I offended)

"All, all except Phineas, constructed at infinite cost to themselves this Maginot Line against this enemy they thought they saw across the frontier, this enemy that never attacked that way--if he ever attacked at all. If indeed he was the enemy."
