21st poem – 21st hour – Marathon – To want?

To want?

To want the temporal easement of
Person, place, thing or feeling?

Many a riddle come to question
Many a riddle lay one impression

To want

To hold

To have

Is the consistent bloom of the earthling who may know nothing in the want amd even less of the feeling

This heart is never wanting.
For abundance is one fine point extending from the breath children
Of the woman we will call “center”

This heart longs for nothing
All its desires be met in the moment

  1. Ivan, the language you use in this (and all of your poems I’ve seen) is so special: “consistent bloom of the earthling” and “abundance is one fine point extending from the breath children of the woman we will call “center.” I really love the last stanza: “This heart longs for nothing / All its desire be met in the moment.”
    One tiny editor question — Why did you choose to use “be met” instead of “are met”?
