House of Cards

Think carefully
on what you do next.
Look out your window
and look at your city.
See the winds,
the rain.
Imagine pushing your way past gusts,
struggling through whatever tasks
you believe are so important.
It’s Sunday, for God’s sake!

There is something sacred
in knowing what your destiny is
and accepting it,
treasuring that calling,
succumbing wholeheartedly.
Forsake the world.
Stay here today
with me
and card games and cocoa.
The city doesn’t deserve you
and neither do I
but you
deserve a break.
