The Internet is America

The Internet is America
and I founded a small village
in the Plains.

The largest cities are
and some other things

Interstate highways,
the I-whatevers,
are data speeds
that don’t go many places

A Walmart at every interchange
is the same as ads in search results
telling me
to shop here

Cheap entertainment
keeps drivers driving across the web
Games, porn, and shopping
Are casinos, strip clubs, and shopping

Logging on is
turning the key
Closing down
is like the garage
