Fashionista! #8: The Factory

(the Sixties never knew what hit it!)    
 
The blinding of the walls, †  
Detection of the cracks. †  
The milling, mindless thoughts, †  
That play back countless acts †  
...Of decadence. †  
† †
I come in unannounced, †  
With others just like me. †  
The only difference here, †  
Iím not a wannabe †  
...In residence. †  
† †
Iím here to do my prowl, †  
Iím from the upper side. †  
They stare at me like owls, †  
Who havenít any pride †  
...But arrogance! †  
† †
I duck into the Ďloo, †  
With cocks drawn on the walls. †  
The foil is peeling glue, †  
While I shape-shift in all †  
...My elegance. †  
† †
The Mistress of Disguise, †  
Who walks and looks askance, †  
As Billy Name cracks wise, †  
While Edie does her dance †  
...Spontaneous. †  
† †
Then sudden from a crouch, †  
I leap from where I hide. †  
Thereís Ondine on the couch, †  
Where he and I collide †  
...Inheritance! †  
† †
But Ondineís not my type, †  
He has an aftertaste. †  
And NicoĎs full of hype, †  
But Lou Reedís brain contains † †
...No sustenance! †  
† †
So whoís there left to eat? †  
No Velvet Underground. †  
Canít hang here on the cheat, †  
Thereís Warhol looking Ďround †  
...For evidence!
