It Would Be So Nice To Have Everything You Wanted

Hiking through the slouchy villages
of the black forest, like a fairy tale
of gingerbread and warm beer,

an occupation where you are beloved
and needed, but not so much
that they won't pay you to go away
for a month or so (see above),

breathless kisses
and an unending thunderous passion
even when the kitchen is cluttered
with filmy drinking glasses,

and on that hand, a kitchen
that never becomes a funeral
of filthy dishes,

and perhaps four chairs (not two)
around the kitchen table
so you can have company for once

and a shower big enough
that you didn't have to shave your legs
in the sink.
