Alive

Microwave waffles.
Memory foam mattress
And two and a half baths.
The banality is the point.

A cubicle with a plastic nameplate.
Sensitivity training
And the potential for promotion.
The banality is the point.

Streaming services at your fingertips.
A leased compact SUV
And a week off every summer.
The banality is the point.

Waning desire
And soft rolls of flesh.
Sleep over sex.
The banality is the point.
