We don’t talk much anymore. I’m inside me. My body is a pool of rain. Idle in my cave, I speculate and worry. I don’t know if I’m here or there. Visions in the clouds. I’m back home, warm—I’m strapped in a can, tin casket on a nevermore trip. I think I see things in the air: little flickers or glitter. I hear them speaking (to me or to each other). They static-chatter and mumble. They’re mocking me, I know. And that’s why I’m leaving—that’s why I left. I figured out a plan. I write it all in code, try to trick their code. But if I’m just code then maybe I can’t hide. Can’t hide from the face in the moon, so I might as well go up to it. If my brain just cooks then I’m free, but if it’s all in the code then I’m one more sequence, a step/misstep approaching the inevitable singularity.
