In the aftermarket aftermath

We say good night.

We wish the best blight.

Wonder what’s been bought.


Who’s been oppressed.

Who has given their life.

While eyes stare.

While stairs eye.


A body trips.

It could be any body.

It could be within a finger

Pressing downward into plastic.


More shot on the news.

More corrective lenses.

More dips of the republic.

The bodies stand alone.
