4:20 bro

April 20, 2022

the trajectory was clear

on the X - Y axis


the Z axis however

was lost on me


the Uber came to an abrupt halt then a passenger door flew open and a frat boy hopped out never looking up from his phone walking around the front of the car and then the Uber did a quick jaunt to the right and a full U-turn left 


whatever bro


variations on the theme 

play out in slow motion 


all around 

at all times 

on all days


get in line

pay your taxes

don’t ask questions


do me a favor

don't do me any favors


arbitrary goals  set

and      then      met


there’s no sense of accomplishment

no looking back to admire a day’s work


it’s a treadmill

stationary bike like


what’s next !?!

is that all there is? 


used to do a little

but a little wouldn’t do

so the little got more and more


trapped in a man-sized Skinner box pressing the lever with efficient frequency or frequent efficiency but the returns are clearly diminishing in a constant cost-benefit analysis. In the beginning the reward pellets were more sub sub sub substantial. It was as if they actually meant something


there is no reward for hard work

just as there is no penalty for being a gold bricking cherry picking total sack of shit 


ask me about sustainability


inflatable pools with unpatchable leaks leaching plasticky poofs of last summer’s last breath


spent toner cartridges packed up with postage-paid return labels if that makes you feel better thinking they’ll be recycled but they’re just on their way to a landfill in Eastern Washington


talking the talk sounds good on Earth Day


you’re all fucked  –The Replacements


it seems “tall drip” is written in sharpie on my forehead. The barista knows me and my coffee. A little further along the continuum and the forehead sharpie message reads “IPA” 


—OK google suck it out of my ass and save it on a server somewhere so you can sell it back to me later—


Cut & Paste the above statement into your browser a few times and take note

Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Amazon and last but definitely not least, when it comes to a complete and total lack of situational awareness, is friends/parents dropping people off on campus. Zero fucks are given by most of these "semi pro" drivers, once their passenger has disembarked, or they've stopped staring at Google Maps on their phone so that they can figure out the final 50 feet. They just jet straight back into traffic without so much as a signal or a shoulder check. PUNCH IT CHEWY!
