ten endless lessons in endless love

1. Neatly wrapped in blood-satin velvet plastic:

Endless love is promised as edible confectionary,

perishable and meltable—

So unenduring and finite a vessel

(for a thing supposed infinite and boundless)

 

2. Post-interconnected-humans and

3. Consumerism

presume that 4. persistent affection

can be captured in 5. perishable plastic heart-shaped boxes

or 6. re#ed digital <3 you 4EVS

 

Where 7. feigned sweet sustenance and

8. the sincere individuality of mass production

communicate less and less

about ending less love, and

more + more about:

 

9. the if-conditional

9.5 guilty conscience

9.75 stifled innovation

and 10. perishable plastic waste.
