his morning #22

his morning


my husband’s having an awful time peeling

those three boiled eggs he has every morning

planning it just right so they are still warm

when the coffee pot perks his dark roast

single cup of Joe a splash of light cream

ESPN will report last night’s sports updates

so essential in his male world allowing

predictable communication with other men

people he interacts with daily

should this routine be disturbed

eggs overdone coffee grounds explode

all will be lost with no hope of redemption

while sitting by my side of the bed

before six a.m. he will deliver that day’s eulogy

certain he is doomed
