How Now Mao
How now Mao?
given your 15 of fame,
Entomed in an American museum
as a commodity hung on a wall,
Crudely silkscreened in black with loose
Unregistered brush strokes to give it a handmade look?
Back home, your billboards and posters long gone,
Supplanted by skyscrapers commerce and carnivores.
Your brand is bankrupt, footnoted, irrelevant.
