morning people

i, up at dawn
needing food
a full mug
and a bit
of human warmth

(i toil over a meager breakfast.
i fix two plates, one which i know will
go cold)

finding only
your shoulder,
i imagine
others, alternating,
in your chair
at the table

a coy brunette
with poetic dimples
a strawberry blonde
with tasteful ink
and others, sure:

someone who ponders
coffee cream swirls
someone who eats
the banana slices
before they brown
someone who is
silent in their love

i shower, dress,
and am out the door

but not before
blowing a kiss to you,
all blankets, hair and skin
