I don't do mornings
It's true that I'm up
wandering around in the dark
usually looking for some lost item
It was here a minute ago but now
and whatever I was looking for is lost.
So by rote I make coffee
strong, too much sugar, some milk
I used to use some
"Non dairy, coffee whitener"
but it sounded too much like paint
so I gave it up.
I sit up,
I provide personalized security services for the cat
but if you want to catch me at my best
try me around noon
