Cursed abundance

"Cursed abundance" poetry by Roshan James, Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario Canada

Text:

I’m not afraid of being hungry,

For the chase

I’m afraid of being so full

I don’t appreciate opportunities,

Or welcome ideas

Because of the abundance

Easily bought,

Cavalier in amplification

Rather than hard won

 

I say this

But even this bravery,

Meager-seeking

Is a pantomime of frugality

Until it is tested
