Know Comfort

Egyptology.com: From the Opet Temple. Osiris on his lion couch with Amen-Re as Ba bird alighting upon him

Let us get comfortable

With all the parts of our hearts

All the rooms

With their worn couches

And chipped cups

And tattered lampshades

Gritty when clean

You can smell

Familiarity

Someone’s cooking something

In the apartment next door

As you eat takeout

And watch people

On the sidewalk

Outside your eyelids

As they get heavy

As you can only hear

Your silent, beating heart

And you realize

That the birds are asleep

Completely hidden in the night

Ecstatic

Drunk on their own nature

Just like you
