Cellular assemblage utilized for marketing products:
“THIS paper skin CONTAINS MILLIONS OF C(s)ELLS! THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!”
Reality solicits convenience and sensory experience finalizes the transaction.
Real world patrons divest their human features and auction them to bidders,
Who contain the same organic alignments sold by the merchants.
A higher quality of dust
Contours the rusted inseam,
Bordering golden halos.
Appearing as if
The old metal is smiling. Blankets of lotion
Do the same,
Except patterns are made easily
In the cream
(tracing loop-de-loops_) and all that,
Underneath the fingernail and leave a red tint
Atop human prints. The jewelry was artificial
To begin with
And purchased with full acknowledgement
Of its true form, outlasting real plastic and flesh,
Numb to Armageddon and wealth.
A failing franchisee
Pauses before the entrance
To his store. Beside an alcove
Adjacent to him,
Sleeps a homeless man,
Inside a blue sleeping-bag.
The owner nudges the man
With his foot, in response
Hiding under flesh,
Words familiar to borrowed time
Possess the seconds of their exchange.
Language makes existence happen.
