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

it's dark

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.

These mornings

I sit up,

I stretch,

I provide personalized security services for the cat

but if you want to catch me at my best

try me around noon
