Hoarders on A&E

What we hold onto
owns us drowns us sedates us
slow death by shopping.

Because of the media

based on a poem written by M.

They say I need a
man. Chocolate. But an eye
lash curler’s enough.

original source:

I don’t need chocolate to eat or a man in my life
I just think I do
because of the media
All I really need is my eyelash curler.

Negative campaigning

With all this trash talk
even the winner comes out
smelling like garbage.
