blunt complexity

This book is thick, yes, but the print is large,
the complexities are not all they seem. I am surrounded
by young men who mistake podcasts for wisdom, who
can repeat anything they hear; mocking without
harmful intent, claiming solutions without problems,
touting vague histories and bold predictions. I am,
it would seem, one of these men, only tuned in to
different voices, voices that do not speak to fill
time between ads, voices that speak
only in soft whispers, in the moments before sleep
