The morning sun

caused my dog to seek shelter

rolling over avoiding

lying in its glare, caused

my morning coffee, dark and hot

to chase

the nighttime fairies and ogres

to the edge of the cup, thus drowning them

in its blackness, where I

turned a deaf ear to,

not affected by the world turning

as my coffee grew colder

and the dog sighed a dog sigh

which made me wonder if

he had felt the movement of the Universe, which

caused the sun to glare,

and the coffee to grow,

colder in my cup?


-but the dog just sighed

a dog sigh again


-but the world continued to turn

unawares of other things occurring,

causing the morning sun

to shine


-all the same…..
