Adequate

Requirements totaled
Infinite sum regression
Distance from here to there
A goal never met
Consumed by fearful sweat

Buried in narratives
Boxed in ringlets
Drawn by shapes
Flatland authorities
Teacher priorities

Contemporary fealty
Uselessness the evil
Opposites the hunger
Parametric thunder
Decibel barometer
Mercurial plunder

In service's power
In the adequate
Enough not enough
Glass halfway filled
Meniscus emptiness

Carpenter's ideal tree
Template doesn't fit me
