Sell-o-phane – A Poem

Sell me sell me sell me

A bottle of acti-freeze

small wrap of nullity

upper-shelf magazine


Sell me sell me sell me

an MP3 a new TV

something glossy

but essentially empty

Sell me sell me sell me

first person shooter

new gaming computer

smartphone commuter

Sell me sell me sell me

intellectual pornography

masturbate my dignity

with satellites remotely


Sell me sell me sell me

relentlessly upgrading

emptily parading

tacitly evading


Sell me sell me sell me

shrink-wrapped personality

buy the book morality

affected smug urbanity

Sell me sell me sell me

as meat at the butchery

well done and still bloody

prostitute with vanity

Cell me CEll me CELL me


The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  1. Sell me a way out of the reality of what matters … distract me in bytes …infinitely. LOVED this. ♥

  2. This one just became my favorite. What’s the inspiration? If you will indulge.

      FlightsOAMB has summarised it rather brilliantly… sometimes I wish I didn’t see the mess but could numb myself with modernities toys – awareness can be painful. Thanks for the compliment 🙂

  3. lapoetaflor says:

    Very clever use of repetition. The form is connected to the theme of the poem.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
