bogus

People pay hundreds for a single sheet of bogus paper.
A prayer written on it wouldn’t be necessarily answered
By the Lord of Sham, but
It could bore a wide hole in the nasty
Fabric of the universe which you could use for
Storing the trash that wouldn’t fit into your closet:
Warped bikes, burst Swiss balls, flat car tires,
A first edition of the King James Bible
And the original manuscript of Bartleby, the Scrivener,
Stacks of real paper, faux testicles of Uranus,
Several heads of the Buddha, your favorite specks of dust
In jade and obsidian boxes, whatever.
