Time Out

Time Out

Not always a where
but sometimes a when
whatever it is
It’s not happening then

At first crack of dawn
quiet in the castle
everyone’s sleeping
there isn’t much hassle

Except for the dog
who goes out and comes back
occasional sneezing
paid dues to a lilac

Coffee is brewing
I get the first cup
maybe the second
before anyone’s up

Two hours’ hide away
time on my hands
to ease out of asleep
‘fore the mothership lands
