Yelp Review - The Space Is The Place

You shed enough of yourself until you are thin enough to survive in this makeshift borough.

There is a hair metal band somewhere waiting to wire its doors shut; you are plaque for its swollen gums.

 






















Yelp Review - Mall At Millenia

You will barter your name for a better one, evolve your skin’s fluency in advertising.

Carve an expired credit card. Wear the slivers around your neck to ward off want disguised as need; check for missing organs after you leave.

 
























Yelp Review - Trojan Condoms

You are the bend in wicker, the stoop of a fire station or the curb outside of an emergency room waiting to become a prologue.
