Consumed by Consumerism

You wake up sweaty and uncomfortable from a bad dream. No, a nightmare. It's dark outside and the cool breeze feels nice. No, the sunlight is creeping up through the clouds as it does at four o'clock each morning this time of year in Idaho. That's when you see it. No, them.
