Pawned

We are without
name
and rank
we are numbers
and small ones
at that

we are expendable
disposable
poseable
plastic
erasable vhs

dumpster diving
fighting for our
hanging-balance
lives

laid off
and laid
out to dry
to be picked
apart
by vultures

in this arid
wasteland
workplace

pulled apart
and
magnetized,
this game board

pawns need not apply

the apple
still falls
and worms
will find their way
inside
