Taking Advantage of

A reoccurring, inexplicable

despair and the question of suicide.


The garden of

presumptuous temptation.

The specifics surrounding

mental starvation.


This generation attends the funerals

of those they did not know.

The problem is – when it is someone you actually care about – you actually have a genuine relationship of some sort with – the effect is nauseating.

Absolutely, and it has taken on a whole dimension with the internet when people create facebook pages for deceased teenagers and thousands of people comment for the attention, catharsis, and or narcissism.

I love your last line.

It occurs to me that it might not even been solely about the attention. There’s something part catharsis, part narcissism about going through the movements of public grief.

Hahaha, well it is based on the experience of going to a funeral for a friend and dealing with a bunch of people there who never knew them but just want the attention. So it can apply to victims of gun violence for sure.
