May 27, 2008: Kenney gets cute - 0 Comments

". . . They live in a hell of marvels: fierce,
Fully automated joys.

The prowess of their engineers
Is justly fabled. They've leapt to the nearest
Lamps of night. Such chasms spanned!--
Too black for all but their blindest seers.

Their warrior class, insufficiently manned,
Is mad, responsive, and under command.
Their weapon of choice is the toggle switch.
Be watchful. They kill with either hand."

- Richard Kenney, 'Alaric Intelligence Memo' from The One-Strand River, 2008.
