The Metaphysics of Crossword Puzzles

I want to pass time in bed with its mess of quilts
and pillows & luxury of breakfast—toast, I
presume—and brewed coffee, and an egg, soft-
boiled, poised in its porcelain cup; and the daily
news with its debate and cross words found on
every page, except the living section where I
read: What to Do Today with a degree of cynicism.
I want the best answer to 23 ACROSS, four letters,
beginning with L: Love or Lust, or Lost—it’s
complicated—especially, if you stay in bed.
