A guy like me could get used to this:
wild blueberries in my oatmeal,
living room futon naps with the cats.
I finally don’t need much more than this —
no smoke, no drink, off work, daily walks.
I’m your healthy heart attack hippie
baking chick pea burgers with walnuts,
getting high on green tea and good books.
I’ll admit I’m bored a bit. Goodbye.
We say nothing for hours, breathing.
