The Corporate Gene

Staring through a yellowed bathroom window,
I doze in a trough of warm blue.
The newspaper tells me of
Newly offered ovum correction
Which stands to make a fortune,
If the market force let it be so.
While I, broken in the head,
Dream terrible awakenings in
A future perfected state.
