Blue in the morning


Feeling kind of strange,
Eyes refusing to open,
Dried out,
Cotton mouth,
Let's smile, let the sunshine in

Reaching for my phone,
The numerals make no sense,
Buttons pressed,
An unholy mess,
I'm late, and I don't want to.

Rolling over, half undressed,
Skin exposed in the morning light,
Grabbing, groping,
Frantic clothing.
A fashion parade of dead mornings.

Slowly opening the door,
Blocking the sun with my raised hand.
Piercing light.
Fiercely bright.
A harshly luminous existence.

Stopping, grabbing a bite to eat,
Devouring morsels to a traffic musical.
Horns blaring.
People yelling.
This is the peace of every morning.

Promptly, the vehicle arrives,
To transport me to productivity.
Brick-and-mortar,
Higher, taller,
Faster I chug along, for another nine hours.

Another day, another life.
Another wondering, why. Oh, why?
Time to rest.
Go to bed.
You need tomorrow to forget about today.
