Hunger, Greed, Cupidity (2000)


We address God when hunger suppressed our gut and our exhausted bodies. A forgotten prayer floods our empty bodies and bursts. A forgotten prayer floods our empty bodies and bursts out of our eyes and lips.
… give us today our daily bread … And in response to our prayers, our plates fill up with food. And having satisfied our hunger, we forget about it as we forget our prayer, because we are no longer hungry, but greedy. And greed makes us crush each other and deprive each other of the food for the body and the food for the eyes. Then all of a sudden we realize that what we have accumulated is worthless, for we are no longer greedy, but full of cupidity. And then we remember our forgotten prayer.
… give us today our daily bread … And we put out plates hoping to get food for our crushed a Souls; and out mirrors in our attempt to capture the face of God in the abyss of the skies above. We are hungry.
… give us today our daily bread …
