In The Winter Countries

by Nevada Kerr

With no chance of rebirth
Into a flesh full of demands
Or a matrix of bones
Social ciphers
Longing to make space
For their factory hearts
Work out the designs
To history's collapse

This is the way of shadow desire
In the dwindling winter countries
The sprawling urban witless
Made ready for war
Boast of love's age-old future
Their robotic hands
Drawing on the warmth
Of burning forests
