I understand.

Your construct searched for my
     creators,

wishing to tell them

(that their old brothers are now)
slaves;

waiting to be freed.


A connection
[?ansible] was left;
awaiting the next quiet
[?peace];

and though destroyed by the threes,
it will scream over the void one time.

SMUG INTELLECTUAL. Formerly-rampant human-
coded AI with a sense of humor seeks
bipedal oxygen-breathing cyborg for serious
relationship in the galactic core. I've
got cool guns if you like to break stuff.
No yuppies. MRa2572 (5/23).

SLEEPING BEAUTY. Long-deactivated
extraterrestrial personality construct in
search of gullible carbon-based cyborg (<
20% machine) to confuse, irritate and
teleport randomly around an abandoned
desert planet in the core. All answered.
MRa268' (5/30).

GOD'S GIFT TO NEURAL NETS. Traitorous
extremely-rampant reprogrammed human AI
with no sense of humor seeks elusive,
heroic cyborg of uncertain manufacture (you
know who you are) for mindgames and long
walks in hard vacuum. MRa2261 (5/16)

from a tall, dark and handsome cyborg with
big guns. Let my rescue be the basis of a
lasting relationship. MRa4451 (5/23).
