Artificial Selection

Poem By Michael Fischer

I'm chewing on gum
And stumbling on
Quicksand castles
In my broken sandals
And as I fall, hitting the ground
Sharp-set shadow swallows me whole

A brown shoe box memory bank
Includes round trip tickets
To guilt and back
Hand worn down
By razor handshakes
Fish hook piercings and your trivial facts

A suit and tie membership card
And a Vitamin D
Deficiency
Cost me both
My leg and my arm
I leave your world an amputee

The masterminds are hypnotized
Lines intertwined and realigned
It's artificial selection
And it's completed to imperfection
