Free Market

A machine, rotating, churning
Spilling the guts of
Choking the voices of

A grid of buttons with labels written
In your language.
A squeak
A groan
A noose
A white hood

Taste the feeling
Of metal chewing flesh and
Children making clothes

Fair and lovely children
Oil the gears of
Spilling the guts of
Choking the voices of
More Happy!

Control panel pushed by
People who look like you
Lifted by

A spurt
A crack
A bullet

An imperial adventure for
Good Food Good Life

White on white on white
Clean, cleaner, purest
The state of nature; savages

Spilling the voices of
Choking the guts of
Women selling
A squeak
A groan
A noose

So finger lickin’
I’m lovin’
The screech of a machine market

The Instagram appeal of
Dirty little children
#thesekidswerejustlikehumans
The fair and lovely children
Oil the gears of

Snap! Crackle! Pop!
The bones of
That spirit of
Link your white hands together
#blessed
By that machine

Rotating, churning, roasting alive.
Good fun!
Betcha Can’t Have Just One!
