only living vegetables in Las Vegas 

I keep meaning to post something here, maybe a roundup and retrospective of the past year…for it has been quite a year. Presently, I’m attending a software convention in Las Vegas.

I’m actually still thinking it over….what it means to relationships, what it means to software, what it means to the physical human form. 

More soon, or maybe not, but I wanted you all to know that I found vegetables in Las Vegas.

the death of the ball turret gunner

And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze. 

Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life, 

I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters. 

When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
