Everyone is on Sale

Discounted poetry
Free for the taking
Flutters through facebook
In the 30/30 frenzy
Unable to fill the mouths
Of hungry readers.

The concert violinist plays
Unnoticed in the subway stream
Watching a single dollar flutter into a case
That holds the treasure on which he plays.
Last night he played Carnegie Hall
to thunderous applause.

I type these words to the world
Through years of programming
In midnight hours
By dreamers who cannot feed their family
With the sweat of labor feeding corporations
Closing their doors
and keeping the change.
