Industrial Waste

By FlowMyTears

Melted wrappers for cheese slices
become condiments on a sandwich
served with a glass
of water pulled through the pipes
of Flint Michigan.

I want to make a mountain of tires
where everyone comes around
to worship me, computer parts
torn apart and re-soldered
with selenium dehydrate.

Cancers make beautiful growths lining
the arteries of rotting statues,
growth hormones being fed to them
through an IV drip.
