standing in line
i could reach out and touch the person
in front of me

and that left me waiting
holding on to a time
when I slept in a bed outdoors
not a sleeping bag or some other
fascinating device
but a bed
possibly a queen
with headboard
(fancier than what I have now by far)
and though there were moments
in the outdoors that chilled me
to the bone
it was more memorable a night
for those moments looking up
body hidden under the covers
looking into the great dark
with only twinkling lights
to remind me of my place
