clean water that is always
nearby, a home with walls,
a real floor, a roof,
shoes, socks, coats—
clothing in abundance,
a fully-stocked pantry and fridge,
a home, a hearth, family and friends,
a love for which I did nothing in return—
may I give thanks for all I take for granted.
—C.L. Fisher, November 2021
