Consumption is not simply the act of utilizing something, but depleting it. Exhausting it. Expending it. To use it up until it is completely drained.
Our lives are spent in this way of using, and being used. We take of the earth everyday, and one day it will take us back as ash. We give our hearts and trust to others, hungry for them to give back to us. We consume everything that surrounds us, afraid and excited of our own day when we can fade away.
Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
