the original, wordly anomalies
flash-mobs of pixels
that do the tango-and-tease
in prim-and-proper birthday suits

with doors so furtively closed, while
dusty computer screens stifle
a flickering yawn

So easily bought at a few hundred bucks,
these dubious “yearly memberships”;
What was that motto again?
Ah:“The more you pay, the more you can see!” –

but not the creeping afflictions
beneath the vivid paint,

or these tiny tiptoes
towards the nocturnal grave

Now, feast your eyes as you slowly glimpse
these rosebud mouths that open to the sun
as eager tongues prod in thirst

not for candy, but for –

(I stole the word from Finnegans Wake. Ha ha ha…)
