LOSS

Why is it so much harder to lose than to gain? Why does what we don’t possess plague us so much, while all we have is so abundant? Is it a kind of Darwinian determinism? Determined to hunger for what we imagine? Gratification devolves into disappointment in an instant. Like food fed into a grinder, Pulp recycled into new hungers. If I could lose my hunger, Maybe I could lose my loss? ©dbyrne jan 2014
