    Sunday Mourning

    Real, melting butter on my multi-grain toast
    with apricot jam, spread thickly.

    Cold, Ivory cream in my fresh, brewed coffee,
    with a teaspoon of sugar, stirred.

    Glasses sliding low on the bridge of my nose,
    Sunday paper ready to go.

    What more can I ask for on this, my morning
    considering she had packed up

    and left me late, last night.

    Mike Acker
