Generation Now

The eyes of heaven can no longer see
through this dense fog we maintain-
to sustain this life of ease we lead.
Mobile, metal, leather confinements
all costing us years of steady breathing.
So we coat our treasures in sputum
from our chronic coughing, as if,
marking territory, simultaneous ruining-
we must replace the damaged goods
because our eyes have grown selfish
to see all before them as not enough…
something better is always around,
so better get it now before it is gone-
when you indulge you are still behind
for the next best thing has come along.
Do not stop there! Buy the newest too!
Pawn the old off on whoever has none-
but just wants one, anything, to belong.
