A WARM PLACE TO GO
(2/25/15)


we begin
another day

bedroom
to bathroom

bathroom
to closet

home
to car

car
to work

car back
home
again

all temperature
controlled

comfortable
and cozy

we overlook
the sheltered
and protected
aspects
of our lives

we take
our well being
for granted

we worry
more
about pending
social interactions
in their
various
and sundry forms

fighting
phantoms
in our heads
instead
of truly appreciating
the environment
with our
bodies

our souls

when
we finally
feel the cold
it will be
too late

no switches
to flip

no dials
to adjust

no one
to notify

we
can only hope
for a well
insulated
grave
