Morning Serenade of a Single

The alarm clock beeps Refuses to stop An arm reaches out A loud yawn and a burp Bring forth the odor of PJ's Tavern. Grab the remote: The stock market's down Traffic's backed up The President sez... A shooting nearby. Hacking of phlegm A cold, piercing shower Brushing of teeth Mint gargle for breath There's an 8AM meeting. Scents of deodorant, hair spray, cologne No breakfast today The stomach is fighting Could use a dog hair Maybe at lunch. Briefcase picked up Along with umbrella A glance in the mirror Footsteps retreating The door slammed and locked.
