Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


i love that part
of human nature
where nothing
is good enough.
score one for the Buddha!
endless craving
pushes us all
down the maw
of our own destruction;
i mean,
nothing like some
to keep life
from getting boring.
it is astonishing,
all hyperbole aside,
how we are
never satisfied.
how stupid is that?
no matter how
safe & secure,
or even over-abundant,
we are never
truly satisfied.
that is why
i don’t worship
god or evolution.
i just try
to enjoy
the moment,
even as i look
for my next step
