Heaven is –
70 degrees of a comfortable breeze
At 9 in the afternoon.
It's swimming in rosewater inside a crater
That sits in a crevice on the moon.
Heaven has a stereo
That plays David Bowie softly, constantly.
With man's best friend roaming around
Simply defying gravity.
Heaven is everything ugly on earth,
With, now, its beauty unveiled
In my private room that sits in a crater
On a crevice in a crater on the moon.

An old man told his grandson, "There is a fight between two wolves inside of us. One is bad-- it is lust, pried, and lies. The other is good-- love, caring and humility." The boy thought for a moment and asked, "Which one wins?" "The one you feed."

This is such a beautiful poem! I love the flow of it, the meter is subtle and very soft, kind of like it's lulling you. It really feels like heaven-- nice choice of wording.
