Poem 23 Saturday in Solitude

I am all matching

The roommates are all out
to catch sunshine
and picnic dates
The boyfriend is across the country

The only being who will glance me
is the sun through my window
two hours ago he winked through
the left side of the crinkled curtains
now he sneaks another peak through the right

Only two options present to me
as I wiggle my toes past breakfast
Carrot cake or rainbow sprinkle batter
Just a bite of both
...another bite of both
okay, both and a glass of milk

I balance a shell on my nose
And kiss it as it steps down
off my lips
I lay still as it rests on my neck
And remain this way for countless hours
Devouring the day in bliss
