#QuemPensa é Spiralist: Weaving the Terrestrial Mantle

#QuemPensa é Spiralist: Weaving the Terrestrial Mantle

“If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about the answers”

            – Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow


“Yes, everyone seems to be asleep”

            – Nine Inch Nails, Dear World





Operating in the dark,

In the dead of night

They weave the terrestrial mantle,

Penning fiction into fact.

We are Pavlov’s pups, conditioned


En masse to not know what we know not,

Tightened in a shadowy knot.

Wraithlike pact. Transcendental.

‘Tis a language of soundless whispers

Unbeknown to our eardrums.


And the plots thicken by the year.

And we roam around like scattered ants

Until they put us back in line

Harvesting, day in, day out

In collective automata.


Weaving, weaving, weaving the threads

Traversed by us, sleepwalkers

Zombified by phantom stimuli

            To obey. Obey. OBEY.

            And hush. Hush, HUSH.
