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,
forgetting
and unforgetting
we do this to ourselves

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

for the sake of

for the sake of
health, they spend
your
entire life tapped into
the bloodstream
like a long-legged
mosquito and its
bureaucratic stinger
hooked on
sucking off
with the bowelless
purpose
of a corporation

for the sake of
health, they are
a vector
for infectious
diseases
and a dictionary
of pre-existing
conditions
while we contribute
willingly in curbing
our own
bleeding with their free
bandaids
