The Usual

you open your eyes
swing out your legs
touch feet to ground
and stand
ten minute shower
towel dry hair
dress in clothes folded
the night before

fresh and clean
musky scent
how do you do it?
how do you do it?
no routine’s got the best of me

seven thirty
eggs are cooking
toast and jam
you start a plan:
“get to work
wait for break
wait for lunch
wait to leave
wait”

how do you do it?
how can you do it?
fresh and clean
daily spent
I could never
I could never
I could never ever be
a routine casualty
