Doomscrolling (a poem)

Wince, click

S    i    g     h

Dopamine vs. Cortisol

Winners Vs. Losers

 [            ]  V  [            ]              

Digging deeper, never enough

Like a squirrel burying acorns,

Hunted stash soon forgotten

So tired. And yet

Can’t stop, want to

Find safety

Hunt for knowledge

What does it all

Meme

Headlines fly out

Like bats at sunset. Ominous?

Unheard echolocations

Still know how to track

Me.    Pr[_]y.
