Morning Rituals

Now when I wake up in the morning's I have only two rituals before claiming the day

a rich Columbian cup of coffee, maybe two for endurance

my uncle recruited me and my brother with Hawaiian coffee beans

and morning meditations that started after I survived

a car wreck of a relationship years ago these rituals bring me

some sort of stability throughout my life avoiding all of

the calamity that I may encounter and though consistency

are for those who are dead according to Aldous Huxley

this ritual continues to keep me sane

it prepares me for the moment when a lady might ask me

"Is this spot taken" because who knows what can

happen from harmless conversation
