MINOR ECSTASIES
(11/10/17)

home
at the end
of the day

warm house

running water

lights

stereo

TV

all working

food
in the cabinets

in the refrigerator

I am beside
myself
with good
fortune

I actually laugh
into the echoed
emptiness

no one
here
to think me
strange

sometimes
two and half decades
of drunken
debauchery

of intoxicated
insanity
are required

before
the simplest
necessities of living
can be judged
as miraculous

I am
blessed
indeed
