Video / Reading– Assimilate

15 years ago, after reading a friend's thesis on the future of internet advertising and customer data, I wrote 'Assimilate'.

 

Assimilate

 

She walks through shadows of crosses

Lines clearly defined

Black

White

And grey

They stripe her frame

 

She creeps towards me

Her tongue is out

Her hands are out

 

Her talons shoot straight through me

I am wrapped in oblivion

I do not care

 

She undresses

But warns me:

Never run

This is good

 

Seeds of lime green and scarlet

Blossom in her wake

 

Tapered fingers threaten

Then break

Through the skin

 

I let go to her

Assimilate

 

Her heart is shallows and currents

I’m completely entwined

Black

Blue

And green

Soft reeds and seaweeds

 

She waits below me

Her tits are out

Her teeth are out

 

Her bent claws adore me

I am the scrap at aphelian

I cannot be repaired

 

She caresses

But scorns me:

You won’t run

It’s too good

 

Pods of sharp pinks and bruised purples

Blossom as she shakes

 

Captured hearts quicken

Then break

Through the flesh

I pluck mine for her

 

Assimilate
