Our Hunger Is Excusable

Posted: April 9, 2017 in Uncategorized

In a brief moment of enlightenment
I take heart
put it down as an incorrect metaphor
there can be no fusion of biology with sentiment
still the light generates heat and that sustains us
we home in on the warmth with infrared intensity.

Such focus is revealing and instructive
it tells us our hunger is excusable
but it is an encumbrance
a burden to be borne by beasts
not a willing offering to enlightened beings
who have no further need of it.

    Body bias versus enlightenment ,maybe it is the same relationship as a cheerleader to the team?
