The Caffeine is Wearing Off, and the TV Adverts are Beginning to Blend Together

Good to the last drop, eh?
Or was it the last drove?
Whatever the case, it’s still good to move,
ghost-like through this revolving panorama,
its deftly swirling sounds and colors,
with people planted in various plots
mouthing some litany or other.
Such sights, that mine own frosty eyes
are capable of conjuring! Immobilized
by the succulent light that gives life
unto the spectacle, I am
but an abstraction sulking in the margins,
a vague idea of an idea
shrouded in a gradually-settling layer of mist.
