This poem is structured around a cluster of little black dots that were “spawned” inside an upside down glass jar, that looks like a terrarium seeded with an alien species— or a surreal twist on capturing fireflies in a jar.
Colors have been desaturated to black & white, contrasting with descriptions of crimson things and the expectation of the plant being green. The black dots (eggs?) respond to the reader’s mouse movement, rotating to make different ones available to be selected, triggering bursts of mutated yet readable language. These texts that spring up as you move the pointer over the image are both poetic and science fictional, almost like you’re revealing the notes from a mad scientist.
Explore what this whimsically odd progeny and their maker have to say, hitting the reset button now and again to access different creatures and what they have to reveal.
