A Crossed-out Gen X (=unhappy)

 Are you unhappy?

We should be used
to this by now,
this question,

the way the world
falls apart on itself
so easily.

How it laughs at us.

 *

Unhappy, when we spend
an exorbitant investment on
a degree, only to waste the
rest of our days sitting at
an office, that is,

if we’re lucky enough
to get an office job.

 *
Idle servants of unpaid
emotional labor.

What do you plan
to do with your life?

 *

 Life taunts us again.
Expects you to become
a person in its lonely center.

No education can prepare us
for that sort of descent.

 *

Are you unhappy?
Our mothers may ask us,
then gift us with the hope
that we may attempt
the chronicling of self-
care

 *

In the end, capitalism
always makes a profit
off of our misery.
