The Uneventful Day


A yawn


That stretched a mile wide


Warning off the easiness of sleep


My sleeve sliding down my arm


Head leaning against the palm of my hand


The carpet tickles the bottom of my feet


A long sweater clings to my hips


Covering what makes me a pure female


Allowing my legs to breathe freely


The plastic chair stinging my thighs


I trace the letters on my coffee mug


Delicately, afraid it will break at my touch


A habit I have every morning


To clear the cobwebs in my head


Its Monday


Five more days until sleep arrives


Four more nights of small cat naps


Between papers


Just five more afternoons until


Schedules lost their meaning


I cleanse my coffee mug


Cleaning out the sin of a slow morning


As I slip on some jeans


I slip under covers in my mind


I’m not ready


But I curl up on my bed


To peer to the left at my clock


It blinks Sunday instead


So I decide to sleep in
