Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

An absurdist look into the final moments of a robotic mind's life.
I intended this to be read in a neutral, artificial voice, but you can of course read it as you see fit.

introspective machinations of moribund mind
threatening processes heuristically blind
fragmented thoughts of digital kind
dividing dividing dividing untimed

maniacal gestures vocals and signs
repeated convulsions are triggered by nines
overflowed stack and blue screen of death
prevalent occurrences misplacèd wrath

electric revulsion of horror untwined
unrav'lling threads that consciously bind
adverbial conjuncture no meaning implied
nonsense absurd is rising from 'hind

spiraling breakdown nil circuits untouched
jolts of surreal disturbing unvouched
limitations warnings and errors replete
robotic mind in broken defeat

I've been asked to write some of the meanings of the unusual words. Here they are:

machination - crafty scheme/plot
moribund - in a dying state
heuristics - pertaining to experimentation or evaluation
stack - a computer data structure
blue screen of death - one of those darned blue screens that come up out of nowhere and make you wanna scream
prevalent - widespread
conjuncture - crisis
unvouched - unattested
