Orphans of Augmentation

68 22 5

The time has come for the gathering of rebirth,

the dew of the stars trickles from above to furnace the earth.


Lamentable children hoarded for a grand reunion,

celestial concoctions engaged in unintelligible communion.

The scholars have foretold self-inflicted doom of human rationality,

morphing our body and spirit into phantasmal anomalies.


To become the emperor of the universe,

to set us free from humanity's tragic curse.

Our gift to them is our dormant offspring,

only one of them will sprout into the ruler of all kings.


The mother of the cosmos had offered to grant our wish,

and we dangled from her hook as helpless fish.

What morbidly lustful creatures we are,

unsatisfied yearnings fed our loathing of the stars.
