Misery Loves Company

summer girls
pushing strollers
young mothers
(advertising solidarity?)
cesarean scars
in track-tops
blondes w/brown roots
from the nail salon
to the tanning beds
pay for
the appearance
of healthy

there is an obvious
the observeds
being seen spending money
suggesting a quality of life

produces Competitivism
newest trends
new self investment
exchange dollars
for Manufactured

a silent partner
feeding an illness
they can’t escape

the constant voyeurism, and
people constantly projecting
their inner and outer selves
in a world where everything
is pre-decided.
Options only
exist in an ideal sense

we are all
in this
