the full monty …

leaving
the amazonian village
behind
he began
his own excursion
away from
the other
ship tourists
down
a muddy path
unfamiliar smells
surrounded him
as did
the bugs
in
a small clearing
stood
a primitive hut
he readied
his camera
and
to his surprise
appeared
a young goddess
dressed
somewhat
in
feathers
and
a small cloth
in broken portuguese
he asked
photo permission
she answered
in english
sure
but
my typical fee
is five bucks
her iphone
rang
she took the call
then
said
did you know
algorithms
from
phone data
expose every aspect
of
your life
it’s like
you’re nude
to
the world
that’s why
i dropped
facebook
google
and
twitter accounts
and
got my own
vpn

 

listen to me-i’m a doctor….

i find
it curious
that no one
has taken the time
to tell you
that
you
are dead
that lack
of strength
is not due
to an illness
so
if you’ve
expecting
a miracle cure
you know
some unknown drug
from the amazon
that’s not going
to happen
anyway
the amazon has either been
flooded for industrial hydropower
or torched
to provide fodder
for cattle
and
even if they did find it
you’re
still dead
i know
they promised you
a recovery
but listen to me
you’re dead
you’re
a dead
economy
