break late, break fast

when the morning smears itself across your face
and you stay in bed for longer than you should
with the result that
everything happens in gradations of late:

you get dressed a bit late
you brush your teeth a bit later
you drive out of your gateway a bit latest

it’s a relief to walk into a coffee shop for breakfast
to find your friends waiting there
reminding why you woke so early.
