Percy says, I've eaten, and I'm still hungry.
So I say, what about toast? and offer him
a dry corner.
Percy says, I like butter better.
Eggs then? I say. And we share a couple scrambled.
Good! says Percy. And then because he's polite sometimes,
He turns to leave the room, then looks back
philosophically. I guess people just don't understand,
he says, how it is never to be not hungry.
Where to find humans who are never not hungry:
People in the midst of famine, drought, devastation, and political turmoil
Political leaders of all stripes
Advertising companies of substances that can be abused
A child suffering abuse
A parent wielding this abuse
Me on a stressful day
Those who interact with me on a stressful day
Where do you know hunger and what do you hunger for?
