Nightmares

Wake up on the floor by your bed, back stressed, angled,

Feeling like you fell to Earth as Heaven’s last left angel

Crawled up to your feet. hair a mess. Sad, chest painful.

Saw what looked back in that reflective glass rectangle.

Shaking off the dreams of your neck snapped, left strangled

Take a couple really deep breathes, yeah, head tranquil.

Red ankle, must’ve nicked yourself shaving.

Stomach getting snappy, hope the kitchen quells cravings

Get yourself thinking positively, hell, maybe

You can keep a smile going while your inner self’s caving.

Craving inspiration, start to look for something beautiful,

‘Til the gloom consumes your soul, not noticing the moon is full

Stupid fool, the feeling’s undisputible

Dash to bathroom, puke and drool out biopharmaceuticals.

Rest your woozy skull on the toilet seat

But really what’s the point of sleep?

If the toil means returning to the nightmares you escaped from

then you’d rather stay awake and let the poison seep.

Strip to take a fast shower, yet stare blankly for a half hour

Fragile as a glass tower, tongue has turned a tad sour

Feeling like you’d rather not exist like a black flower

Wander back to that lonely bed, realize that you’re in matrimony wed

to the nightmares, so depressed you leave your pillows soaking wet

The only cure for it is sunrise, but to get there you must cut ties,

Risking what seems unwise, conquer when the love dies,

Fighting thru the rough nights, surviving life with shut eyes.

This Guy Trains Computers to Find Future Criminals
Richard Berk says his algorithms take the bias out of criminal justice. But could they make it worse?

I really don’t believe much in this use of predictive techniques for this kind of analysis, mostly because false positives and false negatives are, in my opinion, unacceptable from an ethical point of view. Interesting reading anyway.

By the way, exactly on this precise topic, is based a wonderful novel by Philip Kerr: A Philosophical Investigation:

LONDON, 2013. Serial killings have reached epidemic proportions-even with the widespread government use of DNA detection, brain-imaging, and the “punitive coma.” Beautiful, whip-smart, and driven by demons of her own, Detective Isadora “Jake” Jacowicz must stop a murderer, code-named “Wittgenstein,” who has taken it upon himself to eliminate any man who has tested posi­tive for a tendency towards violent behavior-even if his victim has never committed a crime…

A perfect summer reading. You may get this book in Amazon (US, Uk).
