! Ph Sellout (Advertising Commentary - 2009)

Poemhunter joins
The media
In bombarding
Us with visual ads

A minimum of
Twenty pop-ups
Popped up in the
Middle of my screen

While trying to
Negotiate
Fifteen minutes
Of this site last night

I'm just so sick of
Fastclick, google
Kontera and
Advertising.com

Deleterious
To the poet's
Attempted craft
More than the ads is

The insidious
Invasion of
The hyperlinks
Burrowing into

The bodies of the
Poems themselves
With distracting
Blue advertising

Mars the purpose with
False graffiti
Poetic words
Reduced to billboards
