the underbelly

i sit on top, they work below. i hear the rumble, i hear their shouts. i rest, i sleep, i walk, i eat. they work.

i shall not forget that leisure time is privilege. dependencies, chains of reaction. i command, they deliver.

i can't remember the details of that deal we made. it simply works. all i require, is been produced and herded and grown and presented at my will. i have the sincerity of dominance. they have faith.

so what am i frightened about. why do i fear the empty eyes in their faces, the shadows cast by their tiring presence. how can they be any danger to me. i rule. they serve.

i am alive. they are just machines.
