A better reader than a writer - but aren't we all?
If I like your writing then I will spam read it (sorry about that)

Afternoon sunlight, showers you in supple light
Showers you with hazy waves of warmth
A lazy embrace

Why then do we need an affair with artificial light?
So insincere, bland and disconsolate
So crass and stagnant, bee-buzzing over the AC

Why then do we need the bleary artificiality of a static glow?
With the rectangles of office light in blocks like top pockets 
Spitting and heckling at the stars, from their exalted gutters, 

In actuality
The artificial lengthening of our days
When we can see our hands in front of our faces

Is a battering against our inability to lengthen our lives.
That’s why Powercuts panic and pound our chests
Why immortality doesn’t require a lightbulb
