Not For Sale - Must Be Experienced

In our consumerist world
we expect
even demand
to full-fill us.

We chase
dreams of
"nice" houses
"nice" cars
"nice" clothes...

But do
"do it"
for us?   {more importantly: do they make us "nice"}

at what expense
to the poor
to nature
to our-selves?

We watch sports
but do not play them

We watch TV/computers/devices
but we don't part-i-cipate

We are spectators

"In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation."
-Guy Debord
