Archive for the tag “deceit”

knockoffs & supernatural forces

the merchant of deceit
bootlegging forty-fives of maria maria
& smooth & put your lights on
right there on the information superhighway
accepting any kind of coin without recourse

there is lawlessness on the proverbial streets
whether real or virtually above or underground
vendors of any kind on every corner
participating in the so-called great steal

the music is universally accepted
speaking to all of us freely in any language
priceless and without prejudice
we participate in the pageantry of it all
plugging the meter whenever necessary

november two thousand twenty-one
