Sunday Morning

 I sit at a homemade cedar table,

cup of instant coffee in hand,

and wonder if I ever say

anything profound, of worth.

 

Outside my window,

the sky, charcoal blue,

with her sickness, complains

of a January tummy ache.

She rattles kitchen light fixtures

 

and the birds, with their warm

weather-induced hormones,

think it is spring. They court

shamelessly in my backyard.

 

I think maybe

we should all be birds.

So I decide

 

to take off my pajamas.
