I blame the stagnant landscaping.
Perfectly mulched invasive species
adorning our tepid over concern;
Consume and fuck. Repeat.
the poor anonymous bastard in the chick-fil-a cow costume
Silently miming rap videos as
the intersection clots with traffic.
The pheromone-laced brand name deodorant
and the hedge funds and the illusory common ground.
The constant assault of the senses.
These things we are doing to ourselves,
To each other
Are so unnecessary.
Exactly when was it agreed that measured time would
Determine the value of human experience?
Exactly what are we accomplishing?
