Better Hunger

Better hunger over
satisfaction– satiety
is the stopping at
the limit of
what is.

Let us need
and need
and never
get enough.
Fullness,

like the early dark,
will hurry us to sleep,
will open us to
wondering
what more
there is
to want.

  1. Wow! I really like this. I love the message, for a start. And I especially love the last stanza about how fullness is like the early dark. It’s very visual. Because I think our comfort shuts out what others suffer. I know I am guilty of forgetting that not everyone has it as good as me.
