the dizzying pace of passing traffic
a marching sea
whose tides stop for nothing
or browsing on hand-held screens
engaged in 5 conversations at once
engaged in anything, but the world around them
Day in and Day out
Chaos is only interrupted by intervals of
“Hi, How are you?”
“Where are you headed?”
Drowning out sirens and car horns
Greed and Envy
Fueled by billboards that are
most persuasive than even the most skilled debate artist.
Building desire for things that everyone wants
but no one can afford.
impervious to compassion and reason
Whose only kryptonite
Is a simple Good Morning
