#473 (glutted/thirsty)


too much

salt, fat, sugar,

alcohol, bad news,

entertainment, drugs,

sex, tweets, pictures, sun,

magazines, celebrity crushes,


not enough

love, compassion,

sympathy, friendship,

honesty, understanding,

mindfulness, peace, beauty


we have spoilt

ourselves, losing

the ability to separate the

necessary from the superfluous.

Greed has replaced hunger and the flood

of images we have absorbed now is our natural state,

boredom a constant threat on a horizon made of empty containers.
