INDIVIDUAL

INDIVIDUAL

You regard yourself
as a lonely individual, a non-natural shell
non-social...a puppet of market...our Hell...
only insofar as
you are amongst the bourgeois...
...just like me
before i began to read.

Yes, I dare say you're so far...

from the top...of our vertical needs
with your fetish for shoes, with your creeds
scarce cognitive growth, scarce self-esteem with
self-comforting belongingness...unaware...to be nil.

Brand new cars,
thick masks of artificial make-up...
psychological market-led scars,
the produce of human abstract labour
which for now has not deep social flavour,
don't make people spar...

...give them just social rust
few thrills that don't last...

Davide Ferri,
