Chromium Skye

With faces back-lit by atom-glow and thumbprint access to a smart world future, we ride the light-speed wave of progress ever-forward toward the waiting utopia.
And we smile unsurprised by the ingenuity of humanity; with streamlined fishtailed weather-hoods and spacesuits, climate-controlled by the force of our own consent.

With faces up-lit, ghoul aglow by the light of our thumbprint-smeared bubble-pop smartphones, we sleepwalk-shuffle, progress-driven ever-forward toward the waiting precipice.
And we are surprised and indignant when we are shaken awake with baton and Taser; when hood and boiler suit await us in the climate-change cage of our own consent.
