Comfy

A short poem about the most recent time I felt truly happy.

 

The single glazing

barely keeps out

the cold,

the rain,

the wind.

We're using blankets

and hot water bottles

since the power went out.

 

There's a stabbing pain

in my hips.

Your tailbone

is piercing my thigh

your elbow is a dagger

in my collar bone.

My shoulder is twisted

around your neck.

My neck aches,

my arms are asleep

and this movie is terrible.

 

But as you perch yourself on me

like a fussy cat

finding a warm spot

on a comfy

freshly made bed;

even though you're about as comfortable

as a bag of right angles

and knives

dropped in my lap,

I'm in heaven.
