Everyone thinks I’m not patriotic.

But I am a patriot. I’m an outright xenophobe,

a minuteman.

The problem is I come from

the future. The future is my country.

And the depraved mongrel present keeps climbing

over the walls. To design is

to protect what does not yet exist.

Something has to get displaced,

so the future is leaking, slowly leaking my novels.

Since I’m already in the future,

it’s the way things are becoming

that are the aliens, to me.

why donate?
