authenticity, and social concerns

Information intercepts
morning traffic.
but not how I anticipated,
with the hum of
emotionless commentary.
riots, and key lime protestations
minimized, yet amplified
by medium-sized, printed tees
we find at Goodwill.

Always, Amanda would comment
on how their will’s
of no sincerity.

“That blazer was how much?”

I stare at my graham crackers,
and she volunteers.

$4.99.

Amanda’s not totally off.

“And people like you aren’t needy.”

No.

Dimes and nickels
drop to the floor
of a Snapple bottle
I haven’t washed.
two years after
withering jokes I remember, as
multiple-choice exams,
I introduce myself
to frugality’s qualifying standards.
