The Rich and Famished




“You have made me so happy.”
To affinity and beyond!

Detente is not accord.
“You have made me.”

Our contacts with externality are incidental.
The dreaming is fundamental.

The words I use are the words of my life
trying to negotiate my memories.

I've never had the excess substance
to allow others to feed on me.

Just another low-information human
failing to find camaraderie in the menagerie.

Enthusiasm for the wrong women
(they are all the wrong women).

Condemn, then forget.
But don't forget to condemn.

Judgment is an emphasis,
it doesn't erase the rest.

“There are so many things to remember,”
he apologized.
