by Emily Tong

wealth and freedom are
wasted on the religiously
emo, scene, and angst.
a crowd deserving, of course,
a place in society's loud
apathy, but nevertheless
mirrors society's attitude:
how much spent for
the concert ticket? how much
more for merch.?
for music, for melodramatic
myopia? look beyond
your tears, your apathetic
mirror. a world of fearful
dependency, of careful
devotion waits for restoration,
for newly found fortitude;
not all is beyond hope if
you can see beyond your own
