Compromise

floating in from
a window,
from blare of deaf street
slogan conversation
consumer market penitentiary
seeking shade
from cold sweat
pharmaceutical culture
a moments rest
please
some food perhaps
surely my money has bought us
provender
from local dispensary giant

all over the city
commercial adverts scream
from billboard, from speakerphone
falling on the worker mass
as they march
to the labor mills
in yellow fog morning
drinking coffee ration,
eating fructose energy mash
dying
each slowly
from internal organ fail

some rest please
some, water
mind the color

a footstool
some TV
to help me forget
