Dress for It

Reflection of fire in a window
representing comfort,
the visceral satisfaction of flame
and warmth of double hung insulation.

The natural world is there for us
or we can live in the house,
it’s nice to have both
each a refuge from the other.

Central heat and music
or watching clouds and feeling rain,
listening to birds
with wind in our face.

Wearying of either
come in or go out.
The last place we live is in the spirit.
How do you dress for that?
