I have a few addictions
Italian food,
and window seats
on airplanes
going anywhere

I have a few addictions
books stacked
on every possible
shelf and
thin china cups
that hold strong
tea with milk

I am addicted
to violins
drums and the cello
deeply singing
the sadness
of the world
and upbeat voices
singing in harmony

And if at sunset
there was a poetry
book on a red
checkered tablecloth,
cheese, wine and
a symphony playing;
warm sunshine
on my back as
the trees tried
to claw back the sun

I would know I had
lived a good life
