Zombie Fires

Buried beneath the snow line,these smouldering corpsesbegin to glow.Forgotten fires,whose reanimated embersburn brightlyacross the tundra;frozen bodies recoilingat the heatof their undying embrace. Thawed to life bydistant warmingthese undead hordes nowstraddle horizons;crimson fingersflickering overblue-veined memories,as they danceimpossibly beyondthe water’s edge. Nervouslywe shift our gazetowards a restless earth,as unwanted resurrectionsblaze across the landscape. A Siberian wildfire within […]

Plastic Lobsters

Emerging from a coral cocoon you drift towards the surface, feathery legs dancing beneath the waning light of a harvest moon. Perched beneath the waves you hover between worlds, bobbing bug-eyed at metal giants that pass in the night; their limbs of fraying rope and steel beyond the scales of your existence.

Inside these effigies of excess numbered commodities sift spreadsheets like Sisyphus, smiles met with nodding heads as monotonous formalities fall from […]
