Vanilla: Te Dium

(hacking it in interurbia)

By John Hawkins


Now voyeurs / keyboard jungling / predatory tappy toe

gargoogles / down and qwerty / the pharmas in the Dell

slashburningslash / by gaslight / as they go go go


New World / Nazis / spearphishin' / in Auschwitz Bay

(one-half jew killed / each second / for four years): don't ask / don't tell

Charles Boyer's / keyboard jungling / promontory tippy toe


Dancing algorithms / duckrabbit cabarets / compliant human clay

the imprismed light / the upward cries unheard / Dante's data hell

Gargoogles light ass-gas with Bics and watch the blue flower glow


Space between your ears / the last frontier is / gray

Colonial convergence: it will sell / cell by cell / it will sell

Slashingslurring / keyboard jungle / on productplacement tipsy toe

Fascist entropy / inertia / digital decay

In the big black / man hole / tolls Pavlov's bell

Gargoylin' and gaslightnin' as they go


We know it didn't have to be this way

It's just the way all the dominoes fell

Through the keyboard jungle on tippy toe

Gargoyling and gaslighting as they go
