bubble wrap explosions

eight twitching eyes in dark room watch screens
scanning for numbers
searching decimal points changing formulas
cell by cell

eight eyes
four bodies and arms plot feelings against a matrix
set down in a monthly newsletter

in front of a spreadsheet
their bodies shudder like animals in
mascara exposed to raw electric shocks

small bubble wrap explosions go off in their head

the four heads that hold the eight eyes

the leader of the bodies was missing for weeks
only to be found in the toilet slurping down toilet water for survival
