What to Me Is Luxury

“Luxury, to me, is not owning a lot of stuff. Luxury, to me, is filling (feeling?) unrushed.” ~ Tim Ferriss 

a choice between

green tea or barako coffee
espresso or cappuccino
never Milo or Ovaltine
shuffling between
Cilla Black and Petula Clark
never Shirley Bassey or Beyonce
always broccoli
never cauliflower
Sinatra certainly
Buble occasionally
Placido Domingo a priority
no longer Luciano Pavarotti
Licad over Grimaud
and it isn't because
i'm being patriotic
Sharpie, Pentel Pen,
Pilot, Bic, Donga,
Mongol, Crayola
over bullying
over and above
