Watchful Face

by Mark

We’re slaves to a face
With two hands
Created by us.

Surrogates of our lives
prescribing its
social Valium:
dotting frames for
work, eat, and play.

Just look and see
Residents asking permission
for tasks of fun or to
munch down on double
stuffs dip in milk.

When we should live.
Sling shots of scotch
stuffing down some eggs
all at six am laughing
As its ticks talk their
judgmental jests.
