market invocation

the greatest marketing
innovation of all time
is
addiction––

the illusion that
there is
no choice

that you need to
waste some piece
of this world
every day of your
life

that you desperately want
wealth
you don’t
have

that electronic disconnection––
even for a second––
invokes anxiety
beyond
words

that the private market
cures all––

that an amerikan president
will scratch your every
itch––

that your anger, stubbornness,
fear, & ignorance
are charms to reach
salvation

we do not know
what love is––

a holding on––
or a letting go––

but it is not
grasping
