look at the relief
of one sitting

purely at pleasure of rest
their laboring aside

whether wealthy or poor
the richness of breath is free

the one who fills their cup at the keg
will spill it en route to the porch

the one who pours halfway
assures more for more

the one who misers and hoards
rests uneasy and surrounded by rust

the one who holds loosely and does not reach
assures more for more

the one beholden to accolade,
reward, fortune, and fame

they are never quenched
a papyrus ever gulping

the one who chooses contentment
cannot be added to or taken from

they are whole
wholly at peace just sitting
