FEEDING THE TIGER
(9/22/10)


we give them
objects

we give them
experiences

we give them
support

we make
offerings
to assuage
the frustration
desire
anger
guilt
and fear
of the ones
we love

our efforts
only seem
to compound
their original
distress

we cannot
give them
what they
truly
need

we can only
give that
to ourselves

free them

free us

starve
the beast
before it
consumes
us all
