The Windup Girl
by xanderhyde on Deviant Art

All women at some point in their lives, whether married or single

Appear to have experienced some form of ‘enforced sexual servitude’ and is a fundamental

Feminist observation, that her body is already pre-appropriated for a specific purpose or task, a political pawn:

Necessary to replenish the population / army / work force / state procreation

And / or The Pleasure Principal: a distraction from critical debate and moral reflection

Q: Should bodies or relationships be controlled, choices contrived, towards an engineered trajectory?

Q: Is free love really free?

A multiplicity of sexual transgressions pushing the boundaries of accepted normality

Expanding the regulated range of the consumer market-bubble

That excludes personal liberty

Blind eyes are turned, just so long as its profitable

While the public are force-fed a highly controlled diet of fictional imagery

A daily bombardment providing a carefully manufactured façade of illusion, presented as usual

A manipulation of things being done a certain way, lulled into a false sense of insecurity and self-rejection

As one attempts to dismantle the edifice of patriarchal tradition

Where the sacred feminine has been completely erased from the narrative of Creation

Side-effects of conformity, a consumer-centred despotism fraught with hidden murky undertones

Where the misuse of power over women’s bodies is a prerequisite for their appropriation

As a relief-outlet, a regular quick-fix from suppressed, repressed emotions

Of rib-less culture-struggles driven by the machine-of-desire and consumerism

Overloaded with sensationalist titillation

Where the sanctity of love, unity and connection are forsaken

Bent, misshapen and stretched beyond all limits and tantric recognition

The curious behavioural-antics of a post-millennial age of narcissism

Inspired by Monique Wittig and Jennifer Doyle

✩ Smart City


Today’s ‘Smart City’ is where training and education

Stopped being about following one’s true vocation

And somehow became all about programming and conditioning

Schooled to become another brick in the wall

Another cog in the machine

Drilled in

From such an early age it’s now the New Religion

Where each new emerging generation

Shops til they drop, ’til they’re so far in debt

They become trapped in a prison

Of desire and consumerism

Seduced by strategic product placement and subliminal advertising

Victims of a society built upon capitalism

No escape! Do not pass ‘Go’! Do not collect ‘£200’!

Do not buy a Hotel, (let alone ones own house)

In fact go straight to Jail!

Caged like a wild animal in a Zoo

That ate the bait

Who swallowed the smart-sim pill

Herded along

With all the other “must do’s and should have done’s”

On the road to ‘Blandsville‘ in downtown ‘Homogenisation

Complete abdication

Of one’s ability to think for ones-self

From womb to tomb and into total annihilation…
