Blankets

wouldn’t the world

be a kinder

safer space

if adults carried blankets?

plush and soft

providing instant comforting

or sand-filled weighted

keeping us grounded

tethered to the day?

until the day dawns

that I dispatch

with convention

to that degree

I bare my foot

(painted and be-ringed)

curl it under me

rudimentarily effective

solid in pressure

thigh firm on arch

I soothe myself
