Take a walk in the capital of capitalism. That is late capitalism. The Hamburger tower era is here. The corporation mindset has hijacked society. Slowing down people who eat and walk in busy midtown Manhattan. A female and male voice recite texts from different sources.
A Nonlinear poem. No punch line and no climax.
