The zeroes and ones snuck up on us like a morning alarm, no matter how many times we pressed snooze, they just kept coming. In waves of pulsing, cobalt light, flashing beacons and white noise, they enveloped us.
I often asked myself if I could have done better, preempted the war, but knew in my heart I couldn’t.
What did I do? I’ll tell you what. There was only one thing I could do.
Unlike the rest who raged and moaned and fought, I relented.
Now, I live my life as a tumble dryer. It’s nice to always be warm.
