A few lines on: monsters of the future.

by b socha

A monster in the future is really a monster from our world that was shot into some inescapably freakish portal and got trapped in some hideous world. When we say “monsters of the future,” we have, ourselves, been shot through the portal to the freakish future. There, we live as fugitives against our own time and enemies against the monsters’ grotesque world. It says more about us, who are merely monsters in the future, raising our fists to no avail against the reptilian snatching claws of those we have sought and created from our past lives as human beings. Can a monster know itself?
