Morning News


It’s early on a random
Monday morning, just a day
that happens to be there
because it has to be something

and I sip coffee with milk and sugar
like an old person or a child who
doesn’t like the taste

well, I am getting old by most
ways of looking at age

on the news there’s a story
about how people with happy
spouses are much happier
themselves and in better health

and as you sleep in the other
room part of me wants to
wake you up and yell

‘Save yourself!’
as if the house were on fire
as if someone was dying

oh, yes, we all are
oh, yes, all is fine.
