easy does it with that fire

Standard

lighters2

when he brings me lighters

the non-stop air
is good
setting of alarms
is good
in the mid-day
blues playing
shade drawn
afternoon of him,
life is good.

i barely made it to
presentable,
chores
and nervous energy.
all wasted at the door
as he steps in.

this is the life now
and soon
dinner somewhere
with just the right
breeze
& lighting
