how to live in an empty room

do not be concerned with
the lack of furniture;
revel in the abundance of space

a few living things
on the windowsill,
a lamp, a comfortable
place to sleep, a table
on which to write,
a place to tuck away
the essentials of life

these are enough

this door that you can close
is more than some
dare hope for.
