My Morning

An audible disturbance reverberated in the wee hours
Lurching out of bed, my eyes squinting and my body weary
Oh joy, the railroad is needing me on this morning dreary

Fumbling with the phone in the dark, I dropped it twice
Clearing my throat, I answered it, sounding barely alive
The caller mumbled something at oh-four-thirty-five

Shuffling to the sink to slosh cold water on my face

[Hata Bildir]
