For Company

"For company

I like lots of MTV

stylish imagery, advised, connived,

and contrived to

take me far away from me


I like a cell phone conversation

short enough to slip in the crack of

the call-waiting-generation

I like a foreign film or two

if that's what everyone else likes to do

for company


for company

in the 21st century

I go to the club, talk through the show

I'm so hip there's nothing about Jazz

that I don't know

I read the critics evaluation

short enough to mirror the copy of

expensive public relations

I like a loud and noisy tune

if that's what everyone else thinks is cool

for company


for company

I like French philosophy

deconstructive obscurity

formalized, canonized, and dignified by

the university

I like a trendy indecision

weightless enough to forget the

forgetting of which

nothing bears the repetition

I like an expensive aperitif

if that's what everyone else thinks is neat

for company


for company

I like down-sized efficiency

touch-tone community

digitized, expedited, and systemized

for fiber-optic fraternity

I like a face-less congregation

plastic enough to remove

the discomfort of

intimate association

I like an ethnic look and feel

if that's what everyone else thinks is real

for company"
