unprecedented waste

It isn’t a matter of appreciation…
it’s just that here is this marvel
of communication – spartacus
would have willingly let himself be
skinned alive to have had
this miracle at his disposal –
even just to have known it –
and what do we do? Gimme your best proposal –
or tell the truth: How many millions semi-alone
tapping, clicking, waiting for hearts and stars?

To what end do we endlessly apply ourselves?
New cupcake recipes? Where to buy handknitted hats?

I knew I wouldn’t get this damn thing right
but I do wish somebody would give it a try
just thinking about it makes me want to cry
