Sun Bath

Ben Fama

So evil is normal
and my debt is a pet
a dress to pass out in
and every issue 
is a class issue 
with a communication issue
on a summer afternoon
into endless cans of cold beer
and a pill
whatever’s around
a man in definite charge 
of his own work
writing a television pilot
like, who isn’t doing that
Dale Carnegie
debt was the blackmail
the cost that bought the future
now is a good time
to check in with your boss
I quit writing poems
and joined the social media class
enjoyed such tranced hours
as a blue chip brand ally
sex positive + glamor obsessed
sitting in the drive thru line
I looked through all your pictures
I don’t really want to know you
but you have a cute cat
