Your body floats within space.

I never set my dinner table
nestled within a small kitchen
rather I omit it from the routine
sitting upon the floor
in a carpeted living room
taking in breakfast
and the snacks between
because formal I am not.

I use a fork
and a spoon
the size dependent
upon how much I want to shovel
in at once
and lobster isn’t a delicacy
it’s a torture
to bash it down
and break it open.
I am not an extravagant type
simple is safe
simple is my home.

As the extravagant scurries
to build outside of Earth
I quiver at the thought
another building to be locked within
huddled in a room of germs
and gestures of acquaintances
and the only way out
is holding your breath
till the oxygen dissipates
and your body floats
within space.

Thanks for reading.
