a second space age

The optimum population is modelled on the iceberg- eight-ninths below the water line, one-ninth above
” – Huxley- Brave New World

What is to come
as in what is the becoming of us

the whirring world grits its teeth
in the fly wheel – bare fanged
elements deflect with fur and silver foil
before our eyes populations
fizzle
pop and
p olariz e

into a tail spin
dives
the
tick-tock
continuum

narcissists are all dead-heading echo systems
come and meet disaster at anarchy’s triumphal arch
fecund to the core burrowing masses penetrate
a black and worm holed Janus looks beyond
witness s p a c e  whip up a premier league of sales

Oh age of momentous miniaturisation
small is the new orange

    • great observation Brian – I’ve seen the future and it’s a senseless search for space to live and breathe 😮
