The only valid statement now isn't that

“Everything’s become increasingly chaotic”

but that we have increasingly conflicting

versions of what we call Basic anymore.

We can’t say “The Basics & nothing more”

& be understood by spouses, families, near

neighbors, friends, closest enemies, strangers.

The measure of everything is being warped:

There's no too little, but to the Starving.

There's no enough, but to the Sated.

There's no satisfaction, but to the [Dead.]

The Basics are constantly being warped

by images of increasing magnitude. Enuf

isn't just Some+, more than just Adequate;

anyone asking for adequacy is discounted

as insufficiently addicted to Increase; while

many are addicted to Much, calling it Some.

Meanwhile, we diet our asses & bellies off.
