Cacophonous creaks and groans as window panes, glazed
over from sunny respite, shake with the nodes of vibration
from the bus station in my front yard. 5:00am and the sun
rises over the only tree I can see and with a smile I roll over
and seek solace in the dark comfort of my lofty bed.
Floor squeaks and moans as calloused feet pass sweet
to the porcelain crow-footed tub that wouldn't even fit in the door
so they brought it in through the wall. Hot and cold knobs,
shoulders throbbing with anticipation of the emancipation
from my sore tendon fetters.
In the closet is a kitchen, petit and powerful. Four burners of
natural production creating meals for kings and bourgeious.
Water damage and decorations that would make M Stewart cringe.
And in this binge of simplification and eradication the only thing that
separates me from direct reality is the conscious effort to rise
from the comfort of my bed and leave this simple place and walk into
this complicated world.
Beep, beep. Alarms mean nothing when deep slumber inundate all
rational feeling. But I rise and go about my new, exciting life.
