we live at the bottom 

of a shaky structure

it’s stable here 

winds are softer


sun shines 

over the clouds 

stress dissolves 

under water


if everyone's a winner 

then we're losers 

take off your pretensions 

get comfortable


it only hurts 

a little at first 

then you find that 

brilliant freedom 


we live outside 


watching the arrogant slide 

on privilege 


the kitchen staff

know hot to eat

while dinner guests

vomit in their sleeves


one day we might

get our chance

in the meantime 

we live these moments


we live inside

this celebration

in our minds

we’re comfortable

Brilliant as usual Robert. Life on the outside is not so bad.

A good poem stating the importance of “nesting.”
