Machines Like Us

Poems

€ 13.95


`Machines Like Us is part love story, part dreamscape, part exploration of self. This surreal and disjointed novella-in-verse follows its characters (the speaker, Boy, and Historian) as their acts of love and violence become indistinguishable. For these characters, love is dangerous, disorienting, self-erasing, traumatizing. Identities blur. Memories muddle. Bodies change. It becomes difficult for them to understand themselves as individuals without first investigating the boundaries separating each fromthe other: `there is no way to tell us / apart there is no way to know / whose hand is at the camera` Throughout the book, the speaker, Boy, and Historian struggle to connect and disconnect, to tether and un-tether, to survive, to make sense and meaning in and out of their relationships with each other. They are terrified to be both with and without each other, and the resulting horror - the blood, the broken bodies, the decay, the changing faces - becomes a landscape the characters can`t shake. `-
