I am a meme of myself, a constant playback of life frozen between one click and the next adventure; a constant churn of content. My mind is a streaming platform constantly offering me shit, while I sit on the toilet, hardly having digested the last 55 major features, I get offered the next 64. There is not time to flush. We are constantly consuming. We are constantly being stuffed. Sometimes I just open the window instead of exiting the building, locked in front of a view screen, trying to catch some air.
