My artistic conception of life_sm

Smut on wooden seats thirty years ago, now I speed to Suzhou
280 kilometres an hour, flying by endless pallid high-rise blocks
en route from peasantry to this spurt of pleasure in shopping,
more luxury goods pumping social capital sold here than anywhere.

The old games and gods are disappearing, scrub any thought
of a golden age, our luxury is silver, speeding past the sustainable,
using others to entertain, feed, arouse, nurse and wipe up after us.
