attention please

7 Apr

she asks a question
and i answer
but she’s plugged in tuned out
she says: your hands remind me of upside down yellowGreen hearts
and looks straight into her device
encased in some cutesy colorful protective cover
punches buttons relentlessly
i say: it’s the pollen
(chuckle)
but she’s plugged in tuned out
having a conversation with twenty-first century babies
is pointless
everyone asks
no one listens
(punches buttons relentlessly)
i think: we’ve lost these children forever
they’ve wrapped themselves around telephone polls
look ma no hands
i made the paper

there’s a pasture for people like me
it ain’t green though
it’s overpopulated with the insane the drunks the whores
the writers the readers the haulers the wasters
from time to time they throw tarps over all of us
and let us decompose naturally
while the outsiders debate the release of methane
attention please
dinner is served
in sala another
