Description (in English): 

This video poem presents a nightmarish image of a body that seems to be inspired by Hellraiser and The Matrix. A sitting skeletal naked body with an umbilical-like cord connected to his heart and a screen for a face, inside of which a face grotesquely screams, apparently in pain or a trance (or both) seems to be the speaker for the poem. The verbal part of the poem is delivered entirely by audio, and through electronically distorted voices. The pain in the lyric cyborg speaker for this poem raises questions about medical technologies that artificially extend human life through painful surgical procedures that insert devices like pacemakers to regulate biorhythms. Has this character become posthuman?
