The Hedonic Treadmill
Now, I am here.
The sun glistening off of the gold windows
Amid carefully manicured flower pots
and "100% natural" lemonades.
The smell of Channel No. 5
from the hotel lobby
brings to mind the hungry back home.
I sip guilt with my sparkling water.
The shiny new toy-
The compliments on my gel nails-
Oh, the ease!
Forces me to admit
Money does buy happiness.
