what occurs on flatness never curls inward towards the body: that is
unless a fundamental identification is at work. nothing of the sort in
futurism which is responsible for the clean and proper body of the
Mac and Apple, the sliver that cuts through flesh, everything acceptable,
horror against against horror in false topologies, topographies of
destroyed villages, torn flesh, mutilated faces. it is all one and it is
all one and the same: too many deaths, and too many deaths.

just to make it clear: these aren't _notes,_ this is _labor_ purposed
for slowing or scraping the flesh trying to think, what? about the
damage we cause in the world, about the damage the world is caused.
