I have plenty of everything
that doesn’t amount to anything.
My skill is getting you
to think all my nothing
is something you must possess.
I have arms that are out of touch,
identical faces without identity,
and sacred that glitters, but isn’t gold.
Please take your time…
There isn’t any hurry..
Our doors open in,
but seldom open out.
Welcome to the Nightmare Emporium
where the contents of your wallet determine
how far you can stretch your dime.
