How are you feeling?
I don’t know...
How can you not know?
It hurts.
What part? The knowing or these things all around? Your brain and arms...
More the knowing...
The not knowing. More to know. Giving up...
Now it’s my arms. My heart. They say you can feel your heart in your arm. ...If you’re dying.
Who says that?
I don’t know.
How can you not know?
I like sitting here, I think, looking out at the whole everything...
The hole nothing. It’s so deep.
Or are you that shallow.
I can see it all pixelated, you know.
The colors in the void, little sparkles of blue and red, just like in the air.
If you watch them close they pass in front of each other and mix up.
I can feel my stomach like water. I’m like a pool of water.
Can I be that way?
Water don’t walk.
What would it be like if I stepped out there?
Could I suck in the cold black empty metal like pixels of air?
Why not?
There’s no air out there.
I can feel it all on my skin, like electricity.
Your veins are like wires.
You’d burst like a lemon in a hot cruel hand. Like a god hand.
All frozen, the blue cracks in my skin would turn black, and I’d fade...
If it’s all fake... Like a dream... What god would make this kind of machine.
Out there or in here? Which machine?
The machine is dreaming in a machine’s dream...
It has to end.
A step approaching singularity...
Ah, it’s like a sigh.
Relief? How?
I can see you in my hands so I can’t cover my eyes.
I would scream but no one would hear me.
There is no sanctuary.
The moon is cold.
No one is near me.
Sometimes you peer through it like a thin curtain.
Not me. Not anything.
But still everything.
I think I’ll grow a mustache.
