The line blurs
Between the virtual
And the real
You can see her
Greeting the news reader,
When the ad comes on
With the jewellery owner
Asking her to come buy
At her store, at her prices
She admonishes him
"Why do you pester me like this?
"Haven't you got other clients?
"I can't afford even a peach now!"
She looks around, makes sure
That no one is around
Then confides to the seller
"I take what is given
"As what I ask is not given!"
Even after the flat screen is switched off
The sound bytes are heard
Though the speaker and listener
Are the same
Eve keeps saying she will not bite
