Awake (1)

Your alarm goes off

too early.

One last cuddle followed by

brushing, dressing,

bed heaving as you lace your boots.


My alarm goes off

too early.

No work today so what the hell …

return late night texts, check emails

light dimming as I fall back asleep


Thunderclaps peeling

just right.

Hazily muse if I should rouse

storms passing, sleep being caught up

Stretching as I stand for another day.
