Brother Bollocks
hears

sees
their evolving
messages

they speak
in logos

slogans

hypnotic jingles

and he's sure
a portion
of subliminal
advertising

they talk
down
to us

feeling
that we're
the same
buying fools
that we've
always been

Brother Bollocks
turns off
the TV

the laptop

the smart
(smart for them)
phone

and goes
for a walk

alone
in silence

scanning
the earth

the sky

weary
that even
billboards
have been
updated

choosing
instead
to watch
his feet

taking
the steps
of a temporary
nonconsumer

dreading
the next
directive
