“Something like America…”…trends

Sanity implements

A

forever greeting,

“hello.”

Prevails against 

Keratin shrapnel,

Nibbled 

At center 

To 

Meddle with 

Process gaps 

Bridging what it means to function

In understanding of sodium deficiencies. 

Price dismisses

Valued

Goods

For

Price to situate

A Dollar General,

Mere blocks away 

From City Hall.

Where inside 

Small Town Politicians 

Argue

About the patriotic

Ramifications 

Of the local Adult Bookstore

Hosting

HUMONGOUS 

American flag, 

In their parking-lot. 

Trends qualify their loyalty  

In testament to 

Entropy. 

“something like america” 

Populates the shelves

At thrift stores.

Class abandonment 

Promoted like labor cycles.

Precious metals

Transferred from African quarries

And stored inside used electronics,

Recycled as tropes 

Placating cosmetic solutions

Distinguishing the cost 

To sell the mirage of nothing. 

2.

Recruiters for the Socialist Movement 

Took stock of those attending their rally

And Shifted focus from the lonely white-man,

And approached the college students.

Revoltuionaires recognize the importance

Exclusion 

Brings. 

None of the comrades

Suggested sunscreen.

Daylight magnified 

Through the clear plastic straps

Outfitted along the backs 

Of the lawn chairs

Straightening young spines. 

Scorched flesh 

Indicated pinstripes,

Sequenced in lumps

Divided 

By the chair’s manufactured

Givings. 

Grab and go

Propositions 

For prosperity

Dispensed 

Like paper-towels

Summoned 

From an automatic wave. 

They said,

“Time is money

And socialists 

Chase the dollar

To recycle paper.”

And they said,

“Time is money 

And the youth 

Are cheap 

To buy.”
