a brain awakes

a brain awakes gains 200 pounds sheds a 20 year old ghost before it awoke it opened doors ground beans percolated morning coffee kissed an ex-wife goodbye as it left for the future …it had dreamed too early meanwhile a bug is swimming in a toilet bowl the bug wonders if it can safely leave you sleepwalking through the rest of the day you go sit out on the decking blink in and out between flashes of deja vu a hummingbird comes to the feeder your mind hums along then like a bird on a nest it settles into the rhythmic reality of another wednesday
