The 'Perchance' Economy

Via the vending maelstrom
I get a blighted
Portfolio poultice.
An art deco
Electric toothbrush.
Three cut-out
Culinary
Square meals.
A jump-to-it
           
                        Confederacy
Of confidence
                        Madrigal

Where nothing is
As it seems – and

The usual
Acidic glare
From
My bed-sit
Night nurse
Who has
Madam Blavatsky’s
... Eyes.
