corporate addictions This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
addictions fed,
desperately trying
to grab hold
of life.
missing the bulk
of the matter
and ending up
with something short;
less of our own
expectations.
clinging to power/money/substance
(pick your poison).
we're all going to die
in the end.
do you prefer something
sweeter than this?
you're addicted/convicted/suspected.
(is this what you thought it'd be?)
you missed
the bulk of the matter
and have come to find
hangovers are
your morning coffee.
