It is an excess of people.
A buildup of waste.
An increase in emissions across the board.
A strain on the ecosystem.
A blight on a natural order.
A tipping of scales into unnatural territories.
An ever-growing database of every manmade moment.
A piling on of bites of life.
A pillow of white noise between the car crashes.
Spread like wildfire across suburbs of Skynet.
A lens for every viewfinder behind every paywall imaginable.
The perma-sensation of round the clock leaks from a tight ship.
Under mountains of digital gold waste.
And the stitch-up of piles of forced fashion.
Between the immaterial of a factory-made dream.
A rationing of one’s time for another.
Always converting what is into what has been.
Through exhaustive mileage of convenience.
And then they wait for holiday sales, the Glut.
