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.
