Post Poverty

scared to buy

    onbrand Mac and cheese costs too much

scared to lose

    what’s tipping?

scared to break the rules

    different ways to eat a steak

scared to move

    locked in by arbitrary currency

 

to be poor is to sin

you must prove your status

     food stamp cards are upgraded to debit cards

the panic remains
