Countdown For The Day

Morning sun shone
In its full glory
Coffee quarrels 
Stiff body

Artificial catnap
Sleep aid pills
Did it’s wonder

Neighbor’s black poodle 
Vanity Lazing on mosaic porch
Lusting a blooming orchid
Licking edges of master’s fingers

Spray roses with
No fragrance
Hung neatly in cheap Edwardian vase
On yellowish marble mantle

Incoherent gibberish bla bla
Of Quirky Morning shows 
incredulous laughter
Delinquent sarcasm

Countdown begins 
Midst sips of sooty coffee
Quality measured by
Barrage of human folly
