Envy her

Envy her,
     seated quiet comfort?
The rigid
     fixed in fashion
          to extend meaning.
At pains, conspiring,
     but bent on appreciation
          for all things them (us?).
Would that work
     and worry were
          beneficent bonds.
A recourse to rigidity
     would arouse such hope.
As is, all days
     tar quiet comfort
          an ungrateful lot.
