Principal Investigator Dr. Lena Valentin

Principal Investigator Dr. Lena Valentin

with pockets full of miracles, Morning-After Pills

deviation reports and adverse events and

numerous field alerts were issued then righteously ignored

she perceives what they perceive because she’s the receiver

she plucks strings out of the air and makes music

with the shapes and colors of her thoughts

but she always eventually returns to her loneliness, alone in her room

she conducts in-depth interviews with herself

what a Sweetheart Deal


she, a lead investigator, using unproven non-laws of science

led her employees to warn authorities about her writings

and stockpiles of field alerts stored in medical garden files

and flowers of “what-to-do” and “how-to-do-it” folders, trees, and shrubs

her thoughts always move back and forth

between insane and lunatic

(thanks to the ghosts of her former friends floating around in her head)

watching TV she was hit over the head with inertia reinforced by corporate media

corporate marketing, she’s the receiver, helps her perceive what they perceive

it makes her want to secretly let old society housed “in the ( false ) shell of the new” fall

and then stop anyone from trying to catch it

while watching TV she thinks that everyone

should sit back and enjoy some “hopey-changey” stuff

( yes we can! )

and throw away votes in ballot boxes acting like trash cans


her confessions caught on video tapes and paper records

were set adrift on the hot flames in the fireplace in her room

her perverse obstinacy rose

she knew, she knew

her eccentricities and deficiencies were

cute only to her eager suitors and not to her employees

she knew evidence should not exist ( Goodbye! )

nor should existential pouting which is like walking on a treadmill

happiness can only be found in letting go of desire


scientists are built on the feedback they receive

and now she knows that fact

and now she knows what her employees

and what companies want

which is:

a nice liberal equivalent of right-wing fantasies about “family values”

fortunately, she could not comply
