BEDCHAMBER

Commencing with grandeur
Omnipotent
Divinely female

She sat the stool
Brandishing brush
While you the spectator
Attested

Familiarity with form
Apathy of wonderment
Triviality of occasion
Had not set their groundwork

Here was your Picasso
In the flesh
Hairbroom and reflector
Obtainable
Accessible

Pondered
Occasions of vivid indulgences
Concentrated and lucid
Earnest in manner
Swimming up channels of passage

Bliss
Joyousness
Contentment
Blessedness
All ours

Our resplendence has past into history overnight
The transition noticed by everyone
But ourselves

We are not as we appear
We are as we were
Outside endures within
Witness the proof

No scooping
No gougings
No chiseling
Nor carving

Twin esteem does not elude us
Touch has not dwindled
Olio of joined need
Coupled with replenishment
Filled and sealed

You gaze as before
You implant as always
We are crested and stamped
Ripe with age
Our season thrives

I chart you
Mate
Colleague
Companion
Friend.

Go on to Moving Day
