The cyborg ::: the self. The queer body ::: the black body ::: indigenous futures ::: survival stories ::: to exist ::: to thrive. To permeate. Radical intersections ::: to embody - - - the hero.

Are we acted upon or do we act ? What does a girlhood imply ::: a truncation ::: a triviality ::: a lack of quest ::: a void of meaning ::: the consumer-bot she ::: the essentialist vessel ?

::: the cybernetic ze :::

Are we merely a fractured stream of data ::: net-workers ; cloud laborers ; consumer robots ; predictable puppets ? Are we that distorted, truncated image mirrored back at us as through an endless collage of targeted ads, credit scores, recidivism risk, criminal likelihoods, job "fit" calculations ? An algorithmic composite girl ::: not a fit ::: quite a risk.

::: resistance cyborg ::: a permanence ::: to permeate ::: extend ::: weave ::: to knit ::: round dance ::: viral vector ::: witness ::: testify

petrochemical wilderness ::: undercover revelations ::: digital scrawl ::: to write oneself into being ::: an existence far into the future ::: to name the past ::: to be the speaker & the spoken for ::: to articulate ::: to render in radiant technicolor ::: a radical presence ::: the embodied web ::: the networked i . . .
