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.
