Waking up morning slowly


Sometimes it is necessary
to come into the morning
slowly, from an angle,
not to insist that work
begin before the swallows
glide and dive after bugs.
Often it is better to wait
for the caffeine or nicotine,
the sugar or the wet nuzzle
that calls forth our biology.
Usually that crease finds us,
spills us into our sun-waking.
