The Theology of Enough I

and then there was light
indeed
for man learned to love to live
in the dark
and in the end
man learned to love the dark
 
in the dark, the light is brighter
so bright, it hurts
so bright, it kills
 
and then there was food
indeed
for man learned to love to eat
to satiate hunger
and in the end
man learned to love the food
 
with food, the man is satiated
so satiated, it hurts
so satiated, it kills
 
and then there were words
indeed
for man learned to speak
to express
and in the end
man learned to love the words
 
with words, the man is heard
so loud, it hurts
so loud, it kills
 
and then there was thought- enough
enough of all the things that please
the heart
the body
the soul
enough of everything
the cuentos and encantos
 
and then it stopped when she shouted
"cut those fingernails"
(for that man has his soul trapped in his fingernails...for ever)
