Character actor

Apps and ads are comingled

ruthlessly intertwined with

their shameless marketing managers

Eloping with Wall Street

because every whore knows

that anything is for sale

Yet who names the price?

Analog man stumbles

through this landscape surreal

Battling against odds improbable

and chafing at the idiocy

of self driving cars and amateur dentistry

All those things you’ll remember

that someone once said

It seemed like a good idea at the time

Those famous last words

of some character actor

whose name you can’t remember

Lost in the credits of films

equally forgotten
