    This Morning

    this morning started

    way too early

    the cereal burned

    and small baby fingers

    threw most of it crashing

    to slide

    on the shine

    of the

    newly waxed

    floor

    but on your quick way

    through my same

    kitchen-world

    you walked around

    cereal

    and left me a kiss

    on the warm

    of my neck

    now even this morning

    (that started

    too early)

    sings the song

    that you whistled

    to me
