Searching for Signal

Everything is there in the palm of my hand

like a fistful of junk food

all the ideas that they want me to believe

are waiting to be devoured

but no matter how many of these are shoved down my throat

they still leave me hungry

and I can’t help but wonder if there is more nutrition in the packaging

than the beautiful sweet nothings within

the expert said I would be safer if I was lonely

but why do I still crave community

the politician taught me that it was better to segregate

but why do I still search for love

the billionaire said I would be happier if I had nothing

but I can’t help but wonder if that is true why do the billionaires want everything

all these ideas are scrolling before my eyes

a display of confections

chocolate covered bon bons

deep fried and glistening with grease

the world around me is full of shouting

but I can’t help but wonder if anyone is listening

a circle is circling

a message is flashing

signal is weak or breaking

connections are available

searching…
