Where Love Has Gone

There is this
structural feature
within a market
economy that
necessarily produces
an underclass. All
materials fade with
time, even those re-
sistant to sunlight.

Drained of context,
of creative market
mechanisms &
public policy, the
interior surface of
the shell is contoured.
Perhaps an actor sits
there knitting. The
mechanical, despite
its notion of longevity,
is just the biological
on a shorter rope—
banality was never
intended for posterity.
History is historical
romance, politics is
science fiction, to
quote Foucault. Work-
place romance
is a local construct.
