Things

I admire the courage of minimalist
for it takes lots of stuff to live with minimal
and at the apex
at the pinnacle
our lives are collections of things accumulated
wearing price tags that read “priceless”
and while we claim that our lives are more than things
our purchases and emotions are inextricably paired
we hoard our emotions and things unaware
until we have accumulated piles
starring in reality shows
and paying an outsider to clean up after us
