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.
