Why is it
I dream of nuclear explosions
in many cities?
Why do masses of starving people
appear in my sleep?
Why do I hear mechanized mutants
mulling over garbage?
Why do toxic chemicals
oozing from rotten flesh
assault my nostrils?
Why do so many cancer-infested corpses
appear at night to me?
Are these premonitions
what might come to be?
Can such horrors
avoid becoming realities?
"I am neither the mind nor its products"
I release such fantasies.

|| Well, what do you expect? In many ways we're remarkably primitive.
