I Was Just Up Early

 

Dead tired from the heat

I passed out

After the salad of my dreams

I concocted as I walked

And an ice cold Martini

With an onion, no olive

To my grandfather, ‘salute!’

I miss you

Rest in Peace

 

Out came the bedroll

After brushing my teeth

And a wet rag on my face

Wipe perspiration sweat away

Refreshed enough

Turn on a classic

Bing and Frank

Louie and Grace

Celeste too

 

Scuffle between mother and son

Let him finish it tomorrow mumbling fade

She agreed crankily

Opened eyes heard his breathing

The time no one knew

Darkness wrapped its arms

Away I sink

Just before dawn

I wake

 

Here I sit in a silence almost deafening

When air conditioning doesn’t kick in

It’s been a while since we’ve been together

Old friend peace

And we’ve written about nothing at all

Really, nothing

Before the start of the day

Will I lie back and give the alarm a chance

No pressing tasks to do not yet – couldn’t say

 

Overcome I yawn

Thoughts fade away
