The denizens of an xbox 360 hard drive cling to their tenuous existence in an event of catastrophic general hardware failure. A blind man tells his god a story.
The church is burning down again, though you never asked to be its shepherd. Never asked to know the hopes of a dead race. Never asked to return from beyond Perseus' cold veil. You dance on the strings of men blinded before blue suns and gods who eat their prophets. You've seen the end in all its merry flavours of cathode ray cataclysm. Hell. You took it by the hand and showed it its seat. They're always saying its going to be a suicide mission. Thing is, you just can't quite get it to take.
The church is burning down again, and the fire runs clean through your soul and onto your skin and all that is left is shadow and afterimage. You catch like a cardboard cut-out, because of course, how could you forget, that's what you fucking are! When they say to don your cardboard mask, you are only too happy to oblige. When the bullets find your cardboard heart, you cherish every hole they've given you. And when you cradle her in cardboard hands, you suppress that dull pulse in your phantom tear duct, because you have heard your gods and know they find this funny.
