Post Industrial Work Identification Neurosis

I looked for my post post modern notebook

an artifact of mass production, sans erudition

made functional in the eyes of designers

made real in China, as it makes us real many times a day.

A vibrating device

tells me who’s sending a message

or giving a call.

I looked over at the

saggy, semi-toothless face

thinking nothing much,

its easier that way,

but I did explain

about post-industrial work identification neurosis.

Where post modern man

so identifies with his job or occupation

to the exclusion of his other

more organic and sacred self.

The image concrete self

to be a useful laborer, worker

profit margin contributor

disposable, nay dispensable

collateral damage.

And that is how we contracted

post industrial work identification neurosis.
