MORNING REFLECTION
(2/5/13)


I set
the cup
on my
desk

sit

and stare

fluorescents
shining off
the almost oily
surface
of the coffee

wisps
of steam
entwining
above

an alien world
inviting me
down
to explore

for
a few seconds
nothing else
is required
of me

I am
complete

I lean in
a bit
too far
and see
thinning hair
wrinkled forehead
and black holes
behind
spectacles

I am
indeed
there

I lean back
take a drink
and begin
