a good morning, a poem

it was a good morning


dishes with smeared ketchup residue

and pans united with fried egg

piled up in the sink


flakes of sesame sunflower seed sourdough

littered the floor next to

stains of chalula drips


the unaddressed wedding invites

laid scattered on the kitchen table

where the roll of stamps hung off the side

in a coiled descent


the empty couches were reclined,

Mowgli the cat's food bowl was awaiting a refill

and the feces to sand ratio of his litter box

was fairly uneven


my son was practicing how to

scream, cry and kick

and seemed to be a perfectionist


he was upstairs with my wife

who was waiting to pick apart

contestants on reality tv with me


nevertheless,

it was a good morning


my mug was full of dark roast

and I wrote a full page


yeah,

it was a good morning.
