The Church of Now
13 April 2006
I went out searching the wild world
of shopping malls and big box stores,
the moneyed abstractions
of colorful this and that,
the taste of wanting and having
that comes and goes like a habit.
This is the Church of Now,
the place of longing and worship.
The salesman offers paradise,
no money down, low payments.
He never fails to lie,
that's why I believe him.
