Industrial Me

…My mind is a LEGO brick
…without the rest of the set,
…and my patent
…………has expired.

…Who will welcome me
…in the toy-bin
………………afterlife?

…I was built to echo.

…The smokestack, smoke
…rises higher,
……………higher,

……higher.

at right / angles
to the vernacular /

and a prism’s prison.
