“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.” ~ Lin Yutang

Gosa Syren in IKEA-Swedish:
not corpulent, not plump,
not for back sleeping
(like the tag says)
Not stiff, not fluffy,
Not fragrant, not memory-
molded, not down-filled–
Flat,
like the world was once
pre-Portugal and Spain,
rounded corners,
raised on a swell,
sheathed in flannel
cool to the cheek.
No other vessel can convey
this moonlight passage.
