in the darkness –
an internal alarm
before morning
imports light

morning alarm, i
am tuning into this urge,
listening for fine

nuances, when the announcer
states rather harshly wake up!

crashing along the

drenched rhythms –
soft pedaling of

beating out a message:

tuesday morning, car
horns are squeezing
headlights into the fog
of that last treasured
moment before the
alarm goes off. in
pairs, each bright
bulb bobs
and grows, like
winter solstice’s
rice balls floating
in sweet
,
gingery broth,
beckoning for a
bite that awakens
black sesame,
and finally, all
the remaining
senses

in the middle of the
night, the alarm setting
quietly switched
to uncontrollable
gigue in e minor

an hour ahead of
schedule, a surprise
to all as the city
awoke
prematurely
to the pitter-patter
of wet, little feet
dancing atop
their window units
