Pay Day

I wake up 5:25 a.m.

Two minutes before

The alarm is scheduled

To go off

I lay there

Almost in

A catatonic state

The Alarm sounds

And I manage

To quickly

Hit the snooze button

I’ll get up in just…

A minute

I mentally prepare

Myself for

The abundance of traffic

That I have not yet

Grown accustomed

I drift back off to sleep and then…

Whitney Houston

Bellows out

I’ll always love you

So serene, so melodic,

So seductive

So real

I wake up again…

And turn the

Radio alarm off

Gotta get moving…

It’s pay day
