WARM AND DRY
(4/13/16)


what
a relief

to go
from running

without
a jacket

through a
chilly
early spring
rain

to sitting
in an insulated
automobile

protected

safe

I feel
as if all
of the world's
problems
have been
solved

I wish
that I could
store
this sensation

save it
for those times
when I have
no refuge

in jails

hospitals

madding
crowds

I wish
that I could
share this feeling
with someone
in need
of comfort

for now
I'll enjoy
this brief
respite

since
in a few
minutes

I'll be out
on the steets

this serene
womb
transformed
into a traffic
tomb
