to feel that we are quenched

we will drink chemicals
to feel that we are quenched

in the same way

we will accept less than
what are lives should be
to feel that we are loved

chemically induced happiness
until the test results come back

the body is more water
than any other element
and we have polluted
what we were intended to be
when conceived
in the starlight
