Anxiety regulation and resource allocation.
Appetite is persistent.
Reminding us of a need. A call to serve. A demand for fulfillment.
Appetite is common to bodies in motion. Source and flow. A mode of transport.
There are other hungers. They too present as appetite, though they seek not substance.
These hungers are blind, without sense of taste or smell, knowing only the absence of satisfaction.
We feed them from empty opaque containers, hoping that their food is inside.
We fulfill the call to serve, but the service never satiates. A dish without nutrition.
Appetite continues unabated. Empty containers are served.
Anxiety regulation becomes the body's mind.
Resource allocation becomes the mind's body.
