poetry, trails of thought

And so consumers

And so consumers even consume themselves,

As expectations high result in

Wild impatience 

And soliciting demands, both of others 

And self; both of process 

And wealth; both of that 

And awful old hat.

And the poverty of spirit,

Thus spirited away,

Like secret tranch of 

Whiskeyed trench from olden times

Of serious decay,

Does lead us all down roads so painful:

How this damn

Consumer-

Is-

M

Consumes us all.
