From the Archives: Famished Craving Pt 3

Famished Craving
the attention of others,
the fascination of the famous,
and the need for faith

Think now
History has many cunning passages, contrived corridors
And issues, deceives with whispering ambitions,
Guides us by vanities. Think now
She gives when our attention is distracted
And what she gives, gives
with such supple confusions
That the giving famishes the craving

T.S. Eliot, Gerontion
