Dreams 2022

Meaningful Sales
(5/30/2022)


we receive
our life philosophies
in the intermission
of television
programs

messages
of purpose

perseverance

altruism

lifestyle

love

commercials
that bring tears
to our eyes

we forget
that they
are selling us

jewelry

fast food

vehicles

pharmaceuticals

we forget
that they are
selling us
at all

since we
have all
been sold

so long
ago

this fantasy
of society
in which
we suffer
