once you were gone
i crawled off of the couch
and into your bed

put on your best dress shirt
and lay there
petrified of wrinkling it

and i thought "i will live honestly today"
which means "i will not leave this bed ever"

this is neat.

i wake up every morning and lie to myself and say 'i am happy to be alive, proud of my family, thankful for the comfort i have attained from the earthly lack of purpose.'

it is nice to reveal our inherent lack of motivation/'relevance' for the world

I wish that was my best dress shirt, and my bed. Beautiful words.
