Idol Collider

from by Sir Greendown



A love song to transhumanity.


To night-train eyes
A drop betrays a gallon
By the arc-lamp moon
The object sighs
The subject swoons
Desire turns the final screw
She bends like yew

Idol collider
The sensors render her sublime
Quanta breaking through the walls of time
The speed inside her!
A billion bells and buzzers chime

To maintain her is a brutal science
A thesis in hardcore
As thrills in trembling passion
Quicken to ash
So wither the fast
Her cloak is cast
