Never Enough Things – Kadeem Beresford-James

I am a thing and this thing wants things and needs things and has things.

Never enough things.

To get things this thing must do things to get things to exchange for things.

Never enough things.

This thing does not want to hoard things like other things because this things knows things and things are worth nothing unless we want them to be. They’re just things.

Never enough things.

When things become things all the things in the thing want to be part of that thing. So it seems, at least. But some things don’t care for things that become things because those things soon die down because the things that follow those things are fickle.

Never enough things.

This thing wishes things were different; to follow this thing’s thoughts on how things should be. But at the same time this thing wants things to be different because being different in thing and thing, as well as translatable thing, separates the things from the things. But not really, since things are things even if they demand otherwise.

Never enough things.

If only all the things in the thing got along with everything else, then all the things of mass thing and harsh things would go away and things could build things as a thing; for all things! But things fear things, so that’s impossible. Unless things appear, because even though things imply the contrary, things are very fond of other things and things from things becoming things, even if it takes decades, is a thing.

Never enough things.

Until, eventually, the thing collapses into itself due to an overabundance of things. Because doomsday things have always been a thing.
