Chris Harland: Punchcards

Self-Conditioning

Self-Conditioning

 

Punch Cards

(after Self Conditioning by Eugenia Loli)

 

I had a picture

of an end product.

 

I’ve seen other units

replicate the ideal pattern perfectly,

to the programmers’ exact spec.

 

So I copied the archaic cards

from producers of successful lines;

I read them

religiously.

 

So, it seemed almost impossible

when i found the product’s weave proved flimsy;

the fit, wrong.

 

With every new run,

the goods are faulty;

 

some snagging imperfection.

 

The only fault I can find

is with my own machinery.

 

It’s surely not the blueprint;

and even if it was,

I can’t fashion love blind.
