My country’s addicted to Facelessbook, it friends them then
bombs them or sometimes it bombs then friends. The drones are
faceless when they fly over mountains friending the villagers & the
queen bee they would friend if they could find her body would
also be faceless. To revisit the word ‘drone’:

FACELESSBOOK

My country’s addicted to Facelessbook, it friends them then
bombs them or sometimes it bombs then friends. The drones are
faceless when they fly over mountains friending the villagers & the
queen bee they would friend if they could find her body would
also be faceless. To revisit the word ‘drone’:

Some tell me to relax, it’s a stage in late capitalism, just accept this
till the revolution then get guns. Dadaists suggested blind inter-
ventions with screaming & staying drunk. Facelessbook makes it
complicated when people are nice. After our loved one died, we
put the crematorium on the credit card. i told the two young Activa-
tion Representatives at Metro PCS —they were very sweet, probably
someplace in the Midwest—it’s not just that his phone was lost,
he had died, he would not be using the phone, & they asked, Did
i remember what kind? was it one of the kinds with the flap?
It took first Brandy & then Steve an hour to retrieve the security
code. Please let’s stop calling it “his” code, stop using “his” now—
& then i thought, no, the dead should keep their pronouns. Keep
geometry, especially roundness. i tried contacting him in a trance; 
his person hadn’t stopped leaking specifics. i couldn’t tell if he
was happy but he said, “Man, the food here is great.”
