Luxury

What is luxury?*

Something inessential

But conducive to

Pleasure and comfort**

A queen size bed

‘Neath a ceiling fan

Firm mattress

No top sheet

Pillows—two—

Squished to perfectly cradle

My weary mind

A down comforter

Of the most ideal weight

Some limbs covered

The others exposed

Intentionally

To facilitate

And regulate

The ultimate temperature

This, for me,

Is luxury.

    I would now say that my iPhone is a luxury I can no longer live without. I cannot imagine how I lived for all those years without this small computer in my hand.
