Eric Vance Walton

Homo-Cubiclus – An often intelligent but sedentary creature who sits in a tiny three walled office for 8 to 10 hours a day. These creatures survive on various forms of fried pastry, sugar and caffienated beverages and frequently daydream of places far, far away.

Madison Avenue Marionettes

So spellbound
we count
Dollars in
our dreams

We chase dollars
while wearing
invisible collars and
Strings from our limbs,
Dance, dance

Marching to

An ear worm
So cunning
That we swear and
be damned it’s
Our own

We follow the piper
Right into
A self-imposed
prison cell
While all we really have,
this singular moment,
passes forever
from our distracted eyes

Not enjoying nearly as
much as we oughta be
While the most
precious commodity
Evaporates
Time, our time

Become Fluent in truth
An incongruent sleuth
You won’t fit their plan
But you’ll be a (wo)man
Who still has time, your time.
