The alarm going off

my mind already awake

fighting the urge to get up

the bulldog next door

the paper hitting my door

the delicious smell of coffee

perculating bubbles

sizzle of a shower

finally time to think

buzz of cpu

and you

Kids hustle justle

car started warm

doors open, slammed

gears shifted


clothes changed

hair brushed

teeth brushed


work alarm silenced

work phones answered

work shit typed; filed

work alarm armed

door clicked lock

kids hustle justle

doors opened; slammed

dinner cooked amongst


hungry children fed

homeworks all been read

dishes in the sink

children off to bed

dishes finally washed

now its time to think

lonely buzz comes through

nothing else to do

and there’s you.
