it is
an eldritch algorithm
that insinuates itself
into the undercurrent
of insidiously frenzied need
to pull
the gasping mouths
beneath the surface
of the toxic pools
of self asserted necessity
gently entwined
into the harsh light
that shines upon
the ever growing cracks
in the facade
of ritualistic joy

live love and lose
in an age
of instant gratification
with the heady daze
of post plague
as the talking heads
espouse fear mongering
over silver linings
as the world economy
crashes hard
against the invisible line
of self quarantined

and i haven’t slept well
in months
yet it keeps
getting worse
