Conveniently free

Last night I made arrangements with the cat and turtle person down the block.  This morning I drink coffee and write.  I notice the growing pile in the living room.  I tend to the tattoo on my left foot.  My beloved and daughter still sleep, upstairs. 

This week the mornings
Are conveniently free
So I can sit
Drink more coffee
Than I really need.  
This week I notice
The buds on the lily
Are goners,
But still the full flowers
Hold their own.
The living room
Begins to fill
With dorm room
The cat sleeps
On her pile of shoes,
Head propped on a heel
Just so.
