more

31 Oct

there is always more
more to do
more to save and want
more to eat and chew and do
more
more more more
more mouths to feed
it always wants more
more from you
expect more from yourself they say
there is never a respite
never a stillness of contentment
muscles jerk eyeballs loll
for more
glands secrete cash registers clang
i reach up to the mirror that is a scrawled list of objectives and swipe my finger across one, erasing it. and reach for the dry erase pen to write one
more words to say more ways to say them say pithy funny cliche erudite trite ironic platonic
more ways to be smell feel speak
till the moreness is less
so much less that it is really nothing at all
