Afraid of Silence

Podcast in the morning, Spotify during the day — ads a bonus. Netflix tonight, or Hulu or Prime or YouTube. Started an audio book to hear someone talk to us. Dose us Twitter, and Facebook; nobody likes you but thanks for the noise. Hate group texts but feel that rush when we get a message. Hit up Google News if we’re desperate. Anything that lends another voice to our empty echo chamber. Amazon reviews can help too. Get on Medium and dive headlong into a thinkpiece. Learn why everything sucks or everything’s okay or everything can be better. Cherish those unread emails. Ephemeral messaging is ephemeral happiness. It’s all our voice but sometimes we can slap someone else’s name on it. Just whatever you do don’t sit still and think. The silence will kill you.
