Almost Always True (Day 366)

The only things are bitter 
words and politics and cold 
blue sky aching tired and 
purring under a warm river of 
chocolate and chamber music 
reading and resting warmly 
wrapped in the things we used 
to love how they lifted and 
lightened our troubles until 
they merely floated away like 
feverish dreams and poetry 
winter and absinthe inspire 
and so that’s all I able to give 
to you but at least you knew
it was always almost true
