“The Naked Corners Within” by David Ellis

Through renovation
Bounce gleefully, feel satisfaction
Take apart time and experiences
Sitting close
Watch, as enjoyment comes
When bucking expectation
Change direction, undeterred, calmly
Finding the naked corners within
Delight things other than ourselves
Separate instinct, from the moment
When something feels better than before in this place
Optimism of now, regardless of it all
