hard work is my vehicle 
transporting ambition 
to terminal disappointment. 
As I uploaded into a dream 
(before sleep deserted me) 
     I patched myself 
     into randomized 
nightly text adventures 
or pre-rendered nightmares. 
Trapped between virtual depixellation, 
recycling cross-cuts, 
desynchronisation, wiping, 
decompilation and disassembly, 
     I acquire 
     just code, 
     just lines 
     on the road. 
goto the distance.
