after one too many

after one too many
cheerful reviews from
the industry about
industry products, a
renewed realization
that the media was
meant to sell more
media, and there
weren’t meant to
be many choices
beyond tuning in

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
or for some time already,
we will find ourselves
in the same shoes, one
against the faceless
many who conjure
corporate legalese
that secures them
a place at the table –
in the board room,
we are all little men,

let’s be up to our

let’s be up to our

for six months, Citi
has been sending me
embossed invitations to
increase my credit

my fingers are
just as dirty

there is something

Death is like going to Bloomingdale’s.
– Andy Warhol

there is something
foreign about
retail, a brilliant
sheen
that brings
a glint
to day-to-day-to-
day-dulled
eyes, an electric
humming to
consume, a rebirth of
self no longer
recognizable, a perfect
and ageless death
