Cosmopolitan Subversion by Anthony Salandy
Pernicious are the ravages of images Consumed in momentary escape, A phantom of true leisure time, Expendable, now wasted By obsessive observation Where plain presence pursues No inherent cause Only the sight of furtive glances Across social worlds Where idle hands no longer rest Invested with once plundered riches Robust and coated in generational penance, No, globalized ignorance has consumed Banal capital accumulation, Where interconnection acts as a guise To advanced thievery contemporary.
