Real butter, melting on my multi-grain toast
with apricot jam, spread thickly.
Cold, ivory cream in my fresh, hot 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,
except for her to please come back.
