Maciej Drabik - Cyberpunk District & Concentration City
Excerpt from “Kowloon” aka “Another Death in the Walled City”
One last time the ballerina turns away from his empty stare.
The unwinding elegy ends on the subdominant, and the
broken metal smile becomes whole. The cylinder sits again on
an irregular 6/4 bite, fixing her in dark reflection.
Primordial pitter-patter on the tiles beneath the wicker
chair phrases the rest and indicates a shift to 4/4. Ta da,
Unwound, Fei Lian tugs the red shirt hanging over the balcony.
Fish scales caught in the cuff
flake through pane-less windows, destroying the words forever. Flapping plastic alerts the eyes of the hive to levels below. Enter
the rhythm of breakdown. Tick-tock into satanic loneliness.

By the Book Reviews: Cypulchre
“As a commentary in speculative fiction about our cyber-connected lives, with engaging plotting and many discomforting scenes, Cypulchre is a fine addition to the cyberpunk genre.”
