The Art of Science
Programmed into my split 6rain
My chest covered in blinking lights
Christmas lights, tinse1 coloured
ON? 0FF? ON?
A pattern of light that b 1 u r s
Resolves, blurs, bluuuuuuurrrrrrssssss5ss
down my body
Metal g1ints picked up in the torrent of light
Pour over me, pulses of c0lour
P00l about my feet, flow up my calves
To my h3ad to crown m3
With sinus0idal weaves of the c0r0net.
I 1ook closer, de1ve deeper, rea1ize
