The steam rises

From my coffee

Like hypnotized cobras

Coating my glasses

Like Thanksgiving kitchens

The house is

Quiet like midnight

Even though early

Morning sun creeps

Through blinds like

Lost children’s flashlights

In a forest

Mozart plays like

Those comfortable afternoons

In Essen with

My only grandmother

Giving me a

Sense of love
