i won a free pair of shoes at a sporting goods store in Boston because my customer service skills are so undeniable

oh, wow.
only
two
thousand
united states
dollars
for you
to
build with me
a
website?

what a
terrific
value.

aren’t you
a
billion dollar
company?

and yet
still, you
mercilessly,
vampirically,
squeeeeeeeeze.

“more”
you froth
and shudder and
belch,

WE
NEED
MORE

we have been
taught to
capitalize;
devotion is a
pile
of drooled-upon
dollars.

salvation
is through the eye
of a needle;
a tax burden
of 0%;
a fortune
with no
income.

ours is a
sea full
of flash.
mesmerized,
we feed,
until we are
yanked
free.
