Boy-Next-Door Types

by Christopher Barnes

                On cable networks

                Prisoners are superglued to peeled-raw cells.


                Pollution crawls into HDMI

                A world’s end mutation of temperament

                On a true-to-type Wednesday,



                We ramp a window

                With paddywhacking minds,

                Muzzle-loaders in track suit tops.


                Postpositioning our cull

                We shuttle the complaisant bus

                Supernormally codified

                As humdrum commuters

                And debt-spending

                Treadmill consumers.
