The End of the World Happened on the Internet

Our bodies are filled
[ with spaces ]

none of which will hold
[ us; everyday ]

some of these spaces
[ destruct into -89% ]

black matter, werewolves
[ cry until their bodies ]

contain 0% water, until their
[ bodies contain violet ]

tears and poison berries in
[ a cybernetic forest ]

all watched over by
[ machines ]

of programmed
[ harmony ]
