Literary Nutrition

Why bother?
All the books are written
All the words were made
mixed and setting now
like jello,
ready for an easy slide down
the throats of readers everywhere.
Why spend the time in tension making,
creating something more substantial?
Is it that you know starvation
we will feel when the bowl
is empty and the easy
answers have digested?
how much we will want with a will beyond our knowing
something greater than the games and post-apocalyptic terror
something that does more than make us scared of our own skin
and mindful of how meaningless we are
When we are sick of existential snacks and
have had enough of dead mouth dreams,
prepare for us the second banquet
so we will wonder why
we were not hungry for the first.
