The Cycle

[Happy Friday! Hope you’re having a great day and are excited for the weekend! I’m in a great mood, but here’s an angsty piece I wrote a few days back while reflecting on two recent reads, ‘1984’ and ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’. Hope it doesn’t dampen your spirits – have a wonderful weekend.]

bury your dreams in conformance
send all your hopes to the grave
seek only continued existence
give up those who cannot be saved

Work to fuel Spend to fuel Work
a cyclical landscape of greys
death: less an event than a process
overlaps life in a haze

Consume Allocation Required
Pay Homage Appropriately Due
Perform to your Median, Modal Ability
mean’s too much thinking
means too much thinking
don’t be
mean too much thinking
mean too much

–Herein the Unit was deemed DEFECTIVE and the Process TERMINATED.–

  1. Reading Philip K Dick almost single handedly inspired me to write, ‘Ubik’ in particular. I wrote something called,’Sky Dependency Unit’ that has a similar vibe your sending on this piece, i shall post it soon. Nice Job!

    • Thank you, hope it was a passable tribute… Looking forward to reading your piece! I’ve not read Ubik but PKD will be a firm fixture in my reading list from now on so I expect it’s only a matter of time ๐Ÿ™‚
