Verse: routine

how shall i
wake morning today

with just
a gentle nudge

or a whisper
in her ear

and when
she is up

do I throw back
the curtains

open the windows
and invite her

into my
modest apartment

set a place
at my table

and offer her
wild strawberries

or some cereal
sprinkled on yogurt

or should I
go out

and meet her
where she resides

in the quickening

on windsor
and willow

waiting at
the bus stop on north

racing across
the oxford schoolyard

and every where
in between

maybe i should
just let her sleep

it'd be a nice
change of pace

and besides
it's early yet.
