Burnt Toast and Tepid Tea by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Six am creeps, waiting for my ride

freedom exists on the upper train

the high road taken of lesser fury

it’s burnt toast and tepid tea again.

Diamond ring shimmering like new

but love is dusty, decrepit and cold

like the tea and toast, just a waste.

a rising sun finally warms my mood

Jays enjoying toast; cats sipping tea.

I just leave, time for a newer day.
