that early morning ritual

A scowling hiss escapes the coffee machine
with satisfaction marking the earcon of empty

Farts and burps inside the working fridge
further satisfying anthropomorphic need

Drapes holding on remembering
deriving its fresh from nature’s news

Digital appliances hum softly glow
piercing diodes of red blue green

The box spring groans sweet goodnight
as I cool my leg along her exposed thigh

Together a never ending jazz concerto
Heisenberg’s eternal law of space and time

At the peak of night just before dawn
the furniture rises in ritual cacophony

Only to subside unconcerned
with the bird songs of first morning
