flashing neon box blinks at me
from my computer screen, click
me! Win a prize! Outrun the bull
and win two ipod nanos, free
except for your soul (tax free)
and all you've got to do is click me!
faster runs the little man, helpless to
the society of technology clothed in
multicolored pixels, chasing him across
the screen, till he can't run anymore,
and the bull catches him. "You Lose!"
flashes at me now, and I blink back
in the face of the media. Huh.
as if I would have won, had I clicked.
