Dreamed 2016/10/5 by Wayan
I watched back-to-back BBC shows--first Call the Midwife, set in postwar Britain just as Gagarin goes into space and thalidomide causes a wave of birth defects that the midwives are first to notice...
Then a mystery, Murder in Suburbia, starring Caroline Catz (reserved feline brunette) and Lisa Faulkner (earthy, feisty blonde) as detectives who spend half their time complaining that they can't get laid. Hmm. The acting's as good as in Midwife, but somebody get these two a better script!
Two cyborg trios share a San Francisco home:
reserved feline brunettes; earthy feisty blondes.
From the future or the stars? Now stranded on
Dark Age Earth--passing for human. Not.
The Cats were made to pilot starships; find
our wildest systems kitten-simpleminded.
The Blondes are different; I don't know
their field back home, but they too are so
bright they earn tech-cash easily.
I find them adorable. Bodies, auras, minds. Vive
Though cyborgs don't eat. Their GI tracts
It will clean human teeth--but 'tis
Their fueling's so robotic. Gets me glum.
We're asked to rescue hostages sealed
pilots only debate if she's mapped the route
Snaking her worm-route, we blunder on two mud-
Will the sunken dreamers wake?
