Born into a culture running high on choices,
Desperate greed swathed in silken words, grasping.
So much need in this place, all consuming, no peace.
A broken pantheon of Gods, carefully edited for the masses.
Flashy commercials promising escape from pain, read the fine print.
Holidays and one time only sales to make you forget that you
already have two similar items at home.
It’s a mirage, Vegas is on every street corner, promising you
the life you have always wanted.
All you need to do is give up your soul.
