The Burden of Shock

…and there we all are, withered and worn by the aggregate burden of pandemic catastrophe, political ineptitude and an endless stream of normative everyday entropy that, not only does the media present to us because this salience of shock value is the central bank of any currency of garnering attention, but which is inadvertently also shaped and indirectly manufactured as the medium through which the message of it’s own fractious dissonance can only ever (now) travel.
