embarking on a climb

or circling the drain?

digging a hole for a foundation

or just to re-fill it?

studying to gain skills

for a job that will be stolen by a computer

pouring your heart into creative work

that no one will pay you for

chiseling yourself into shape

or breaking off your humanity?

playing the game

or letting it play you?

shaming others for trying to feed themselves by any means necessary–

yet eagerly following the crumbs

like everyone else

what’s really important? Does anyone value what is, anyway?

surviving, sure, but what more and what for?
