Stacked high, humanity covers the planet, absorbing fat and sugar directly through feeders.
Reduced to saccharine coloured mouths, sluggish tongues and a single sense, we show our flavour preferences in the candy colours of our skin.
When our bright colour fades and we crumble into hydrolysed sucrose that drifts into a sugar-coated afterlife where the souls of long extinct sparrows and garden birds are waiting to take their final revenge.
