morning comes with no milk for my child
no water for my tea
and i leave the house without my routine
broken somehow in my own strength
buying breakfast on the street as i was
denied my granola
i hop aboard my bike and head in to work
munching slowly on my egg crepe stuffed
with spicy potatoes enjoying it almost exactly
the way i like it.
then legs emerge from the potatoes and before
i would allow myself to distinguish a head
and sans-chew i spit you out.
the rest of my meal untarnished is to be
now consumed because
there was no water for my tea.
