||groggy in the morning greeted less by sun
than fire in the east bounding toward us
Friday nightstands gave fair warning
as we drifted off we only smiled
and said, 'of course, of course'
miffed by our indifference
they sounded the alarm
with urgency awaking us
shaken like a work day
rising angry we
bullied them down
pulled their plugs
attempted a return to slumber
thus instead of ready
we got caught unrested
when fiery sun came bursting through
the window and crossed the floor
it caught the dog, the foot of the bed
and burned us finally as we groaned
curses aimed at nightstands went
unheard, at least unlistened
just two nightstands
sitting smugly scowling they
will say it serves us right when we
go downstairs to make the coffee.
