"You Get what You Pay For"

Last August I
was behind on my
future. Proactivity: more
than urgent. I
bought that
spouse (beside the blinds). The sales advocate

was devoid of caveat
empathy, but then my
motives tend to narrow. Operating
instructions injected
a disfiguring

haplessness. You wouldn't believe what
didn't happen. (A minimum expected.)
Would a robot

act more
cost-efficient? Those in my

range exude metal – fully exposed.

Bone Television

Botched orchard.
Evaporating ground.
Branches shrinking.
Night writing



Stump accumulates
moonlight. Vertebrae
exhale inside
glass page.
