Johnny mnemonic

game over

insert anxieties
weak moments

insert coins

credits 0

attention to big junctions

                   the repaired bridges
at the confluence of rivers
the illuminated forts
rid cities of
                    past hatreds

no hope

intermediate errors

mustaches do not hold back the voice

the roads






the coffee shops full of prejudices
pitiful lessons of the deck
(52 cards)

Johnny mnemonic
meets the ultimate

hard drive

let’s go again
