RSVP* not required

The world is neither for or against
me I recently discovered

(dogs yipping and howling
as I napped)

and yet we dwell together
wayward companions

squatting on cold hard ground
and basking in the fire's warmth;

the clay is cold
and hard and wet
(tis true)
and yet

the fire

burns merrier
encompassed by it's cold companion.

Welcome to the party.

*"in the context of social invitations, RSVP is a request for a response from the invited person or people. It is an initialism derived from the French phrase Repondez s'il vows plait, literally 'Reply if you please' or 'Reply please' "
