daydream pre-morning coffee

Vanilla sky
Orange marmalade filled
Chocolate ball sun
Gentle shower of gummy bears
Interspersed with ├ęclairs

Frizzy salt pepper tousled locks
Hubby sees me still seated, shocked
… blurts “left you at computer last night
Honey, raise your head
It is morning outside”

Sheepish I look up
from mesmerising internet
Sporting false grin, stale breath
Gently unhinge arm from
Shoulder, leave it there

Haul rest of me to the shower
Singlehanded, ready within the hour
As I slide sneakers I realize
Golly, must screw back limb, re-hinge
Arm, hinge zombie brain, back to reality
