Costumes

Carefully constructed plastic lining lips, 
filling out branded skirts with silicone,
bathing in golden greed and turning
knuckles into brass at the price of 
blood diamonds and rivers running into 
floating sludge as decaying carcasses
with nooses of cleverly marketed bottles
wrapped around their bloated necks drift
by on melting icecaps of liquid chlorine,
homes with floors of deforestation and 
wasted space six feet below from an
overpriced mahogany coffin, we try to
protect our overpopulation outbreak
with a mass-production of paper and a
nine to five of mutilated dreams bought
from our own educational brainwashing.  

Some of us don’t need a costume for 
Halloween,
We wear our human suit every day.
