Poem of the Day: Healthy

'Healthy' fits us more than the others
'fun' is there, 'comfortable', 'passionate', sure
We could be 'sweet', 'corny', 'scandalous' or...
just, 'healthy'

Yeah, let's leave it there. God knows we
could both use a little as for most
of our lives we've had less than our share.

So, I'll be what this is, though I don't have the name
less questions, less labels if we take all that
stuff away, what remains is just,
healthy.
