Interesting poem commenting satirically on addictive materialist values encouraged under our current capitalist society. The poem uses imaginative imagery and language to make a vivid and humorous point.


Thank you Ralph Dranow!

Vivid & humorous is always good when dealing with a devil!

The risk is always the possibility that Satan is a more interesting character than either the Father or the Son. The poem captures that.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
