soft

Touching plush. Smoothing my hand over smooth fabric, so soft. The cushion gives as I sit. Feathers, college egg crate on top of a mattress. Pillows and blankets. Soft serve ice cream. It has to be extra sprinkles. Rainbow. Soft as in not emotionally wrought in iron. Emotional, delicate. Extra ripe fruit. The dough-y part of freshly baked bread sliced open with steam coming off the top. Room temperature butter ready to be spread. 7-11 bagel and cream cheese. Morning serotonin. Pancakes, french toast, and Belgian waffles. Mashed potatoes sans-wisdom teeth. Avid NAB carpeting. Biscuits atop chicken pot pie.
