GAME OVER
(9/17/16)

our cars

our homes

our clothes

our companions

cross the line
at times
between
necessity
and luxury

we naturally
want more

but we are
pointed
in the wrong
direction

all
that we see
is what society
offers us
as improvement

once
we have
those things

those people

we most times
discover
that they
are not enough

still
something

still
someone

seems missing

the answers
often lie
within that
gray zone
between what
is needed

and oblivion

buying things

going places

is so much
easier

so much
less painless

but in
the end
we win
nothing lasting
through these
means

sometimes
we have to walk
the desert alone

in order
to truly
quench
our thirst
