The Value of E-Bay

Written by: Don Schaeffer

Sometimes he needs, driven by
remnants of hunger for things 
that he can find on E-Bay, gifts. 
Life in the sea of faces passes 
like a trip through mayonaisse,
bits of effort inhibiting his eyes,
seeing the same configurations unrelieved. 
He needs something new 
when life became a worthless 
ritual of empty questions 
that the mere biology of continuation 
never answers.
