A  String  Of Pearls, Like  A  Necklace. 
   Glowing In Offensive Colors. Luring.   
                                          
                                  
           Mall           
                                  
                                          
 A Few Ways  To Get Betrayed:  Being Sold 
 Broken Items Or Mimicry,  Being Recorded 
 (For  What  Purpose?), Being  Ascribed A 
 Negative  Value  And Getting Kicked Out, 
    Or Beaten, Getting Requisitioned To   
 Operate Some  Facet Of  The  Body (Being 
 Cared  For  Enough  To  Fear  Losing Its 
 Favor,  Yet  Not Enough  To Meaningfully 
                 Survive)                 
                                          
 Evokes The Sense Of  Scavenging,  But It 
 Is A Projection And A Mirage - It'S  All 
  Controlled And Coreographed, Presented  
 Like  A  Gift,  A  Reward  For  Nothing. 
          For Being So Beautiful.         
                                          
 With That  In  Mind,  Is There A Choice? 
                                          
 It'S Easy  To Grow Lazy With  Its  Ease, 
 And Leave  Your Network Of Minor Streams 
 And  Animal PoolS  In Dissaray, And With 
 The Waning  Of  Your Secret  Wells, Your 
 Depencence  On  The   Mall   Will  Grow.
