Sounded for Wire

Jim Green, Trouser Press, July 1978

YOU CAN: tie up your plastic garbage bag with a wire, send a message on a wire, connect broken bones with a wire, strangle your landlord with a wire, hang a poster of Farrah on a wire. He's wiry, let's get wired and stay up all night. Versatility, even ambivalence, you could even sell it on TV, like the commercials for Popeel's Pocket Fisherman.
