The following is a spolier. I will tell you what the poem is about, so if you want to read it first, read no further and come back. SPOILER: This is how I picture Brave New World, by Huxley, but with a Nanotwist.

assemble patterns

assemble patterns

in the factory
comfort challenged ―
industrialize metaphors
tremble hypnotically
plebeians without chains
hold proletariat in custody.
in the manipulator room ―
gargantuan flywheel.
mandibles spin at
vertiginous speeds.
assemble patterns of "how"s and "why"s.
language coded in symbology.
boundaries between flesh and metal
give answers burdened with texture
that rubberneck for life.
