Prigami Panacea  

TAYLOR GRAHAM
Origami
“Robot-Subs Delve for Downed Plane's Secret.” He woRRies the spoon in his oatmeal over headlines.  How do you teach ethics to a robot? His napkin's  become an origami bird. This brave new world  more mysterious than a wreck at the bottom  of the sea. Underwater depths. His mind, he jokes,  down-under. Mathilda waltzes into memory.  Matty his wife who was and will be. What is  the robotic mind? He dog-ear fingers corners  of the morning's news. Mathematics of cooking  oatmeal: how many flattened grains of oats, how  many grains of salt to water. And how do you  compute, when one grain isn't equal to the other?  Fields of wild-oats silver-gold in sun. Oat grains  rolled thin, flattened by the years. Robots will  cook our breakfast, harvest our lives. Set down  the spoon, the folded paper of his mind.

Prigami Panacea  

JUSTIN BARRETT 
panacea 
a new drug on the market for Generalized Anxiety Disorder has, among its long list of side effects, something the drug company just calls: 'certain sexual side effects'. the drug company doesn't list what the sexual side effects are exactly but the warning is certainly ominous. obviously, a person using this drug has a real problem with controlling their anxiety. after taking the medication you'll stop caring about your job or the pending bills. unfortunately, you'll also stop caring about sex and you'll become sick to death with woRRy because of it. you will then have graduated to a far more specific anxiety disorder.
