boredom, dissonance

everyone is so fascinated by everything
as if common boredom were a crime
it’s all right to be unimpressed —
enthusiasm shouldn’t come so cheap
top shelf words get thrown around
to describe things that are just okay
when did the universe become so amazing?
when did having a fat stack of neurons become a miracle?
smart primates treat other smart primates like shit
and still get worshipped
we get on our knees and pray to gods who don’t deserve…
