Frabjous Times

scifaiku poetry


the glass and electrodes
now cool against
his brow

live man walking
streets of gold
New Byzantium

transmigrant souls all the ships at sea

missing the numb dark,
he sips his
bowl of fugu
“Tetrodotoxin is 1200 times deadlier than cyanide, and one blowfish contains enough poison to kill 30 people.”
