Poem a Day 28

From an important prompt (I cut the word, after consideration, form the title, but it used to be there).

After These Messages

The few moments’ Saturday freedom. Enough
Time to stand and fetch another box
Of raw, dry cereal, slice-’em-up soft
Palate. Return on swift socks, and
It had been a lie, the “we’ll be right back.”
So much would be a lie. In the future it
Would all be lies, the paid analysis,
The sexual possibilities, the five
Essential products, and the size
Of unemployed layabouts’ New York
Apartments. “We’ll be right back.” Cut
Straight to credits.
