shiny toys

Shiny Toys Festival 2010  -

how sad we are
grasping at these straws
that divert us from
ourselves and one another

we're wired for consumption
hardwired to be bottomless
yet all our goods
do not unite us

we're estranged from
the very thing we want
communion with others
and unconditional love

we become
slaves to desire
for there will always be
something newer and shinier

the raw materials alone
will require brutal wars
we're standing on the graves
of starving children
