Plastic

Shopping Safeway

for cappuccino injectables and false blood tablets

I wonder when the plastic

will come down around our ears

We’ve eaten all the clever marketing

Now the context is slipping away

We can’t gather for the revolution

the revolution is an icon blinking for click

I pay in plastic

I ask for plastic

It comes in plastic

I just signed up for daily outrage

My monthly gift will save the oceanic bee and

the sad eyed children starving in the jungle infested desert

From being murdered by the army of badass ego

Listen to them revel in the blood of fawns

I pay with plastic

I ask for plastic

It comes in plastic

I hit the wall

We have too much

We want too much

Too much information

Too many brands of crust flakes and socialite handbags

Too many pay at the register tragedies

We have it too easy in our cozy vacuum

We have nowhere to put it

No way to keep it organized

No way to make it stop

I pay in plastic

I ask for plastic

It comes in plastic

We want to belong

We want to be good

Live worthy of butterflies and birthdays

Not too many birthdays

The trolls will brand you

new scarlet letter O

Old

The worst thing you can do is be undesirable

But you can get tits and teeth noses lips skin labia six pack

I pay in plastic

I ask for plastic

I come in plastic

The Garden of Eden plastic

cellphone my brain of plastic

Credit scores worked that plastic

work it good

You need cars and toys and trips and voyages and surgery and milk and shoes

I pay in plastic

I don’t know how to stop

I ask for plastic

I forgot my bags

I come in plastic

I pray for plastic with

transfixed lottery tickets

Publishers Sweepstakes

Tax refund

Blood donation

When I win I can pay car insurance health insurance mortgage insurance life insurance

Or I could fight to equalize the stars every child is born with

Or I could spray the cities with

Birth control

ending the tyranny of the McDonalds parking lot rain forest

Where to begin ?
