alive with pleasure

alive with pleasure

newport cigarettes
had a snappy slogan
the entire human race now rushes toward
malls in amercia
clusterfk culture wars
rich plumped plucked well-tred sneaks
mini-mes flitter back and forth
asking for more
looking like legal tender at ten
then the poor and aspirational
showing bags from big stores
wearing gloth lesbian or dank hooker
wandering differently
packs of hungry kids
longing for money pleasure high
what of me
old white guy
i wear my baseball cap to avoid exposure
grey beard will provide enough context
i have few worries
about money sex cars guns pleasure
yet i seek
to help me feel alive
in the midst of this parade of disparity
i vacillate between hater
empathetic grandfather
and single dad
of a starving
yet lost
