Lefthandeddecision – “Personal Precision” – [Crionic Mind]
grinding squelchy industrial noise from Phil Blankenship. extras from Instinct & Emotion, 2000.
snap awake, you’re walking, headphones on, walkboy on belt loop, in the radioactive wasteland that now is. the dust blows, builds grit between your teeth, grinds away at enamel, soft tissue. you pass through empty buildings, titans of industry from yesteryear, barren, falling, rotting. brain flashes memories of the happier, but much like your cd player, grimy, it skips, glitches, hangs on hallucination of familiar voices, almost legible, almost touchable. the flawed recollections imprint upon reality, following the cd skips slinky sliding the spiral staircase of sanity. staring into a beaming puddle, a reflection of your haggard self assembling into younger, tighter pores and better hair weeping heavily, feeling ill, stomach churning, pulsing mind, gritting teeth, you take a drink.
