On Comfort

"Lunch Table" - Wayne Thiebaud, 1964
“Lunch Table” – Wayne Thiebaud, 1964

a midday

cup of coffee;

there will be

words.

two voices

in conversation;

everything

is as it is,

everything

as it should

be…

…on the

surface

at least.

 

i’ll bake

you a

cake

sunday noon;

serve it

to you

monday night

before you

sing,

before you

give voice

to lyric

upon magical

lyric.

 

you say

sweets

aren’t your

thing;

you eat them

anyway.

you don’t

have to;

you know

you don’t

have to.

 

i wonder

if you take

comfort

in anything

i do

for you;

but i

take comfort

in your

music;

it speaks

to me.

 

late-night beers

laughter

music…

perhaps not

a source

of soothing

to others,

but it’s

a comfort

zone

to me…

 

because

you

are

there.
