Luxury

Luxury by Beth Henary Watson

Luxury is the every day
At our house: your choice of foods,
Leather seats in garaged sedan,
All-inclusive Mexican trips.
Here in the U.S.: middle class.

Luxury also gives us a
Private library, media room
So we musn’t brave discomfort
Of the crowd or of poor choices.
Detached, single-family home.

Luxury by Adrianne Cook

Fire crackling
Soft blanket
Warm slippers
Dim lights
Smooth music
Crisp wine
Sparkling lights
Evergreen tree
Happy memories
Luxurious holiday night.
