New poem in Vastarien!

I have a new poem in the latest Vastarien Vol 3 Issue 2! It’s a found poem with Zalgo text called ‘your AI girlfriend named “it”’ and it’s based on phrases from the article ‘Sex robots with “coding errors” prone to “violence and could strangle humans” (David Rivers, The Daily Star, 2019).
