He had thousands of wants

sitting on his shoulders.

One day he decided

to lighten the load,

so he wrote some wants on pieces of paper

and put them in rivers

to roll away to the sea.

Then he threw some wants

into the sky to see them soar

and slowly disappear like suffering.

Some wants were taken to a mountain

where they wandered away

like wintertime,

and others simply stopped breathing

and slipped easily off his shoulders.
