“Waking Up”

ten a.m. and i rise

in the stillness of

an empty house morning,

pull on yesterday’s clothes

again and make my way

to the kitchen where

the coffee my dad made

earlier awaits me,

the only one here and

it feels good to just

soak up the silence

as i slowly sip on

first one, then a second

cup of coffee

as i prepare myself

for the day to come
