Disenfranchised

byDesejo©

Artificial tags everywhere
brand, trademark
the arrival of civilization
franchising the world

So that where-there-is-no-Starbucks
marks a dangerous place
Even those places prisoner
to torn black plastic bags clinging
to drought stripped trees
like grieving Afghan women
after a drone strike

Customers can learn more
about those far flung
not yet civilized corners
on trademarked devices
over franchised coffee,
brought to you by
your trusted News Network.
