Consumptive Discourse by A.R.Salandy

Copious conundrums Face the modern consumer, Where a plethora of choice Subverts caged realities Into idealistic experiences Produced en masse In the prevention of a dissention Longing to break through, But discourses never fail to emerge And reify as discussion spreads To banal gossip, A hallmark of boredom modern, Where beyond paltry expenditure And accrued capital Can human intrigue succumb to ennui Listless in a world diminished By discourse verifiable Only in emotional indulgence Where whispers of social interactions And man-made market trends Give way to discourse consumptive.
