Needs Seasoning

:: winter ::

I am trying not to need
Anybody but God
But, god, it’s hard
To not need anybody


I'm not trying to need
Any one more than God
But, god, it's hard
To need less than one.


I need someone
Anybody can see it
But, God! it's hard
To need anybody


I need for nothing
Obliquely, I can see it.
But,'s hard
To know I need nothing more.
