On Desires

What desire should be for a highly complicated animal like us
Is the pleasure of satisfying the chain of every living: survive and reproduce.
Though, I find no pleasure in such trivial repetitions,
No desire to survive, nor to reproduce.

Thus, desires for me are rather like bucket lists, pure experience
That I can achieve in my miserable lifespan.
Such as pleasing others by causing satisfaction,
Or just in the contrary, it does not even matter until I get my experience.
