Simple Pleasures

That pair of jeans. The chipped coffee mug. The socks with the toe hole.
The vase that doesn't need flowers. The tee shirt with the little bleach stain.
The songs we never tell anyone we love. The shoes that are comfortable.
The ashtray that isn't. The quarters in the couch. The casino chip we forgot to
cash in.The stained sweatshirt with the hood. The jar with the beach glass.
The old wallet. The smell of Coppertone.

It's really not terribly complicated.
Some of the best things are the little things.
The fortune from that cookie that says
"The greatest pleasures are so simple"
