Stop The Auction Rally

flower power, sacre couer
bird baths, pussy willows,
passion fruit, peas,
tomatoes sustenance stomach spirit
dead end gang ghetto bowery bum

maps decay,
memory fray,
men-in-full de
press on raping land
like SeÒor Swanky clanks into Teotihuac·n
skin delicatessen becomes trÈ vegan bar,
book shop becomes shoe store,
gallery avant-garde becomes pottery barn,
lush gardens become electric condo monstrosity.

flowers drop out the sky
land on police officer's
epaulets, stick to badges
as a coalition as varied as a wilderness
tied by wrists with plastic locks
mocks the auction devolution.
