Open my eyes
lay in bed.. stare at the ceiling
your mind buzzing with every thought in the universe.. what to do today??
the smell of freshly brewed coffee fills the room

time to get up

walk to the dresser
look in the mirror
remove dried tears
pale skin
nappy hair
black heads


walk to the bathroom
stare blankly
grab tooth brush
*brush brush, swish swash

get dressed
*time for work.. blehhk

slide down stairs
drink some orange juice
head for the door

walk towards car
glimpse around
a boy walking to school
a dog doing business
*fuck it's cold, I shoulda worn my jacket

inside the car
turn key in the ignition
wait for the car to warm up

time to go

green light
turn right
traffic... *sigh
mind buzzing buzzing
traffic noise
baby screaming
woman lighting up
man jingles asking for change
I stare briefly at the sky
hint of sunlight, clouds of grey, sky still blue

arrive to work...
lock my car

walk inside
punch in..
*good morning
fakes a smile*
sit at desk
file, file, file
customers.. take money, make charges.
file, file, file
time to punch out

lunch time

time to punch in
walk into the office
stare bluntly outside
more customers.. take money, make charges.
Balance cash..
time to go
punch out

walk towards car
turn key in ignition
take off
city lights
night sky

arrive home
smell of fall leaves and wet cement
walk inside
clean up mess
cook dinner
walk upstairs
take a warm shower
time for bed
flip through channels
fall asleep

Next Day
