Marketing Honour, Poetry Quality

Advertisers
know what a product lacks,
know what "the people" want,
so claim the product has it.

They promote

rice Budweiser
as genuine,
as beer;

Mothers' Pride
(a deadly sin)
as bread;

Kellog's cereals
as tasty,
as healthy.

Lying cunts.

it's my hands
my difficulty with melancholy
hence the coldness
fear in flight, god
dog sea
push pop
