With What Now?

we are jars, vessels, bottomless pits
it’s so hard to admit
a lot of the time
we have to fill ourselves
with something or the other
food, drink, clothing
in moderation that’s only natural
it’s necessary
but all the other stuff,
superfluous goods,
better called “bads”
and the head stuff
knowledge, TV, etc., etc.
all sorts of junk
simply substitutes for the missing love …
to fill that bottomless hole …
that can’t be filled …
