glist :: 1

the packets arrive marketing-liar glint
bright inside-see glisted envelopes
creating excited saliva undercurrent
promising just-once-more consumption desire
this-time the-last-time sate-now never-more lies

i'm immune junky crash-sale head-warp madness pharm-glit
less so drink-drunk like-now hurt-soon make-shout
my weakness they know my weakness these glisted promises
exotic-freedom strange-use want-buy must-buy rush
i'm lucky the dark-dread consequence is only bailiff-court-sneer
