Med J Aust 2016; 204 (7): 281.

holding our future in nervous hands
we come with x-rays – ikons
in large envelopes with corporate logos

queue for the Delphic Oracle
who divines the auspices
like chook entrails

this arcane analysis
reading the stars within …

under cold cathode lights, imaging replacing
ugly imagining our thoughts digitise into black
and white vaporising to harsh words
