Chaos Machines and the Universe Child is Sapha Burnell's futurist speculative poetry at its' best. Containing two long poems, which make up Acts IV & V of Usurper Kings, Chaos Machines and the Universe Child is a work which comes along only once in a generation and reaches past the voice of today to the voices of future humanity.
“She grew in the bosom of the Chaos Machines, / In the stillness of their inevitable demise. / She collected souls like valence electrons, / And formed with their apparitions and bones / Inside electrified wombs fading from uselessness.”
— The Universe Child (Burnell)
