Eat it up

want to want

She wakes in the morning ready to consume
Ready to eat up the day and
Ready to take it all with her.

A burden, this desire for more.
An empty ache at the base of your throat.

But I think it is fortunate,
this appetite for consumption.
How lucky to want more.

To want to eat up your day with enthusiasm.
To want to want.

She says she wants pancakes.
I want to want pancakes.

When I quit wanting there’s trouble ahead.
The heavy behind my eyebrows.
When I want to want,
there’s trouble ahead.


Hooray for replies!
