Green digital says 5:20 a.m.


I struggle
these mornings when the moon
like the cats, is awake,
MEOWING.

The cats trip me
as is their nature.

But, I must RIDE
as is my nature.

I crawl to the bathroom
to crap
to blow the snot from my radiator induced
too-dry and full-up-to my eyes sinuses
and put in my contacts.

To the living room where
the BIKE
is already ready
put on the sidis,
heart rate monitor,
iPod.

I climb on the BIKE
and PEDAL

squares
squares
squares
squares

And then,
as the blood begins to
FLOW

circles
circles
circle faster
faster circles

I hit RHYTHM
but the moon is still there
like the cats, awake
taunting me
as is its nature.
