The idea of leaving the house is not up for question.
The feeling of home is too irresistible.
We’ll leave the blinds open for the whole day
and trade our music in headphones
for the sounds of the rain
hitting pavement and palm trees.
We wrap ourselves in sweaters and blankets
and turn the heater up a notch.
Fresh coffee and tea.
We’ll find a can of soup buried in the cabinet
and eat together at the table.
