The New Slaves

Injurious ruin covers sundry fields
where everything is sown
and coolly thrown away
or exchanged
in secret
plowed over in moments
waiting but to roam
the boulevard
an asphalt Appian Way
choked with the new slaves
crucified along the way
by the taunting or allure
of images of torturous bliss
