my morning


i love my mornings,
especially early ones.
just me: unwashed and unseen

coffee prep’s my favourite part
routine in motion
anticipation of first drip
culminates with first sip

diligent dog walkers
and their stretched shadows cast
tap, tap on cool pavement
approach and recede
at deliberate speed

out on the deck
birds scatter like specks
before the harsh whir of blenders
and arguing neighbours
cuts the hum in my brain

…and sometimes it rains.
