Advertising Conundrum


someone advertises a thing

takes great care to shine it up

puts it out there

and waits, knowing

their register will ring


someone produces a thriller

all fast and loud and violent

puts it out there

and stares, surprised

at streets so sudden red


someone displays themselves to tease

tempt whom eyes may never see

puts it out there

and cries “Unfair!”

when those who see demand
