Consumed

Who worries about being minimalist?
An entire industry arose
to organize stuff;
to build stuff
to hold
stuff,
to help us
get rid of stuff
so we have the space
to fill with newly purchased stuff
 
But what are we trying to fill?
What went haywire in our hunter-gatherer brains?
Where is your empty space?
