Not yet, not yet, slow down brain
we aren't there yet, still in bed
listening to the dogs whine,
let them whine.
I'm not getting up yet to go to work.
So many steps to get there, finding my
slippers, no first pushing the covers off,
finding my super ugliest slippers ever
that shuffle towards the kitchen
wehre all the cups have deep tea stains,
a meal of white and blue
accelerating to the bathroom
shirt, sweater, socks, shoes, coat my bag my hat my gloves
jump on my bike ready to go the wheeels go round and round
ok, big brain, time to rev up for work.
