No Wonder You Want To Sleep Through The Alarm

All over town, people
wake in the dark
and plan the day
some even write lists
with such innocence
as if it will unfold
the way they wrote
Then one kid spills
cereal all over the floor, another loses a shoe
and the happy dog full of cereal hurries outside
to keep their regular appointment and bark at the early joggers,
with those bouncing headlamps. Birds start to sing
brown rabbit darts across the yard
lights come on in kitchens
you’re out of milk and bananas and
I reassure the dog that he is very brave
then, take another COVID test
