junkyard (an experiment) [current circa 2000, now dated]

It’s a junkyard in there
Will she find her way out?
It’s a tangle of hair,
doubts

mystery shrouded
in the sheen of magazine paper,
movie star capers,

clean faces, clearasil, the pill
tapers and layers of hair,
air-brushed lolitas’ bare bellies,
crushes and pita bread, pizza,
a bare–breasted supermodel stare
jelly bears,
flares, beverly hills, bel air, teddy bears,
nair,

hangin at the mall, cell-phone calls,
walkmans in restroom stalls,
postered bedroom walls,

hanging at the gap,

shopping bags, sandals, candles,
tabloid sex scandals
skanks, tanks, tom hanks

rappin,
mybad, yadda yadda,
adam sandler, Napster, hamsters, glam,
rappers, oil lamps, blackheads, mascara,
acne,

DVDs, SUVs, SATs, origami, and dickies,

98 Degrees, beepers, Seventeen, self esteem,
