I am Ubik. Before the universe

One knows. I am called Ubik, but

Was, I am. I made the suns. I made

Go as I say, they do as I tell them.

I put them here. They

Will always be.


This is really cool. I liked how you rearranged the Koans into an elongated enjambed poem. The use of linking to full stories on the wiki was an efficient use of the medium is message. This poetic form has a horrifying way of symbolizing a corporate bombardment on the brain. Kind of like watching 100 commercials on fastforward but perceiving all the images and sounds. I shall call it Comoverkillcial!
