Meaningless Gesture.

In giving
charity, in donating a dollar
for whatever

when the cashier asks
if you want to or when the ad
on a trusted website
like Amazon interrupts
you, are you doing

nothing more than attempting
to alleviate your guilt
for having so
much more than others

while whining
about your relative misfortunes
at the same time?

There is no contact
with the life you allegedly invested
in, no experience or evidence
of its success,

or even its influence.
It is a bold
yet weak

and ultimately meaningless
gesture.
