That Obscure Object of Desire


Say the stars align and you achieve a condition beyond satiation. These objects of desire all must defer to a host of new aspirations. Essentially desires are like viruses that by nature only proliferate, ultimately forming even more toxic variants. There’s an expression used by those seeking to put their addictions into remission—you have to want what you have. A tall order if you're on a roll and beginning to entertain the delusion the world is your oyster. A nuclear reactor melts down when it overheats, creating the kind of toxic emissions that emanate from those suffering from chronic Bovarysme.
