Definition: Good Enough

Internal capacities gone not too far 
External audacities sum less than days 
How much food and how good 
Which air and when 
Whose love and why 
Quandaries, of the appropriate type 

Not for any reason 
Nor by any score 
Such benign unfolding 
Need not hoover more 

And with the rhythm between the past 
And what I call a future 
Sufficient is not mediocre 
a word whose fire might be wisely 
extinguished 

Upon the foundation of not enough 
Furniture 
And a place to sleep 
But we need not palaces 
Nor perfection 
And certainly greatness had its days 

Sing no more of epics 
Cry not years for fame 
Love that which becomes 
The humility of no name
