Revel in the Afterglow
What we want is mostly prompted
By what’s spotted, in the moment;
What we need is mostly triggered by a lack.
Wants light up until we have them,
But die down once in possession;
Needs are noticed only when we’re forced to check.
Our requirements shine fainter
Than the decoys of temptation.
Understand the gloom produced by what’s on show.
Redirect your aim beforehand
To the wisps of our essentials.
Serve their will to revel in the afterglow.
