Smile your Marie Kondo smile on me-
Just smile and pretend it can be done
She is a tank against common sense. Invasion of clear mind.
I never tidy up, my life's a mess.
Marie Kondo though makes me feel even less.
Completely disarmed my will to feel.
I'm reading a book today
by marie kondo, a Japanese girl
magic of tidying up"
it's that time of the year again
to tidy things up
and put things in order
according to miss marie
a failure to return
things to where they belong
an attachment to the past
or a fear for the future
tidying is a dialogue
and there are only
a few simple rules to follow
sort by category
not by rooms
no change of seasons....
please treat each thing
you own as a living subject
touch it with your hand
"does it spark joy?"
if it does, keep it
If not, dispose of it
listen to your feeling
keep only those things
that speak to your heart
then take the plunge
discard the rest relentlessly
what you want to own
is how you want to live
letting things go is more
important than adding up
half day to read the book
half day to rest and sleep
nothing was done in the house
nothing was done yet
I'll do it tomorrow
before new year comes
Don’t take this the wrong way
But we’ve got a problem in our hands
It has smooth, shiny skin
No limbs but has you gripping
A portal for information
A place you can escape in
For all the instant gratification that you are craving
Hundreds of songs shuffle awkwardly through Alexa’s mind
Watching unlimited movies is making us blind
And what are we doing to our insides?
Did you know Netflix’s main competition is sleep and time?
It’s my time...but a new original series coincides
I check my social media while alone at home
Red and green flashes give me hits
Sugar rush but soon I’m feeling ****
Dopamine release is making me *****
Fireworks to my eyes and ears
Draining away my good years
My attention divides and streams to all the screens
Barely a trickle left for me
In a fantasy where everything is instant and bright we have forgotten that great things take time
So please open your eyes and look at that clutter of information you’ve got from your device
I think I want to Marie kondo my life
What have you been sacrificing?
What actually sparks joy and nourishes you?
Do you have any candy that should be crushed?
And a question that google can’t answer...what are your truly searching for?
When you look at Maria Kondo cleans your apartment
You wouldn't find mind it when she throws away
The Trump toaster in the kitchen
— The End —
