Suitmation I: Body-lag (one more red alert)

Suitmation I:
Body-lag (one more red alert)
by William D. Tucker

Not quite in synch
Lapsing into ‘toonish-ness,
Realisic detailing sloughing off
Being reborn into some mecha anime
Gotta flail about, undergo psychosis, trauma of first blood
Before I find my foot-work, my mind-work,
So sorry for all the rubbled buildings, and screaming-angsty monologues of self-recrimination, ya’ll!

I know it’s tedious as fuck.

Just one more red alert
And it’ll be nothing but focused devastation
From here on in,
Here on out.
-June 2017
