Everything is fine and nothing is wrong so now
On a table. Next to magazines someone may have read or may have not.
On ambition or the idea of a prospect, not object, in the somewhat near

Not particularly interesting.
But full of promise and intellect and the energy to do more.

While I sit on the table fulfilling the lightest.
The most basic of basic necessities.
