“Beautiful Machine” – Alina Simone

I want to feel love
Get caught in the echo chamber
I want to get crushed
In the beautiful machine

This essay of hers is in no small part why I’m writing here and now. There are practical reasons underneath that as well as emotional-symbolic ones, but the point remains. I know who I am here, and I can say things here, in a way I otherwise can’t.
