concrete air

in the light of the disappointing searing sun
in the dark of bright shiny love
the billboards communicate what you need
and when you have it, it spills to seed
so paint a story and we’ll make it found
your belief in the work as visual sound
your look books, apps, content, heart
are our commercials, our art

don’t tell me you don’t like commercials, awards
more fawning, recognition, it illustrates, draws
you hate us advertising people I see
but you miss the art we’ve created to be
a way for you failed artists
to eat
