Outsource Culture

Memories outsourced
to the cloud.
Curated by social media.
Access denied.

Trust outsourced
to video doorbells
greeting visitors
with distrust
and the harmonious welcome
of corporate jingles.

Romance outsourced
to dating apps.
Swipe left, swipe right,
please fill out
a brief survey
to rate your experience.

Free time outsourced
to hustle culture,
“Don’t tell me
you aren’t working
the gig economy.
You should be out there
at least twelve hours a day
seven days a week,
cultivating a side grift
you entitled snowflake.”

Life outsourced
to self-care,
“Don’t forget
to treat yourself
with basic hygiene
or a hot meal.”
