It Was Cold Today

But, I was warm as I soaked up sun
sitting on the couch in sun reflected
off air and earth and pool and deck

It warmed me outside cement block
covered in stucco home bunker
against hurricanes, building codes
since Andrew destroyed Homestead

I drink in warmth totally relaxed as
life settles down into normalcy where
no more insanity prevails as I go to bed
safe that nothing bad will come to me

Inside my own house there is no danger
sublimely peaceful without arguments
without threats, without mayhem
Peaceable Kingdom where I lie down

I sleep, I sleep, I sleep
