No one reads the EULA.

It’s unnerving that algorithms
can tell us what we’re thinking,
that we’ll upload autonomy
for One Touch Checkout Pay®.

It’s upsetting that someone
is always listening,
and far flung flotsam
voyeur under corporate sway.

But the true perversion
is stepping up for digital auction,
because privacy never mattered
to a generation conditioned to click ‘okay’.
