first night home

it's the first night home
after a long time gone
as soft as the pillow
I will sleep upon
as easy as I've ever known
first night home

there's killer weed
and online smut
the take-out special
at pizza hut
time to rest these weary bones
first night home

          break out the coffee
          it's only 2 a.m. 
          time to binge watch
          the sopranos once again

it's time for that
good Mexican beer
Sam Cooke singing
in my ear
no ringing from the telephone
first night home
