Some Sunday Morning by Gregory Luce

First I think there
was a bell, or,
no, it was a mockingbird
mimicking an alarm clock
and then a siren, but
that was the cat crying
to be fed and then
water hissing through
the pipes in the wall and
a TV news program
from across the
courtyard so even
though it was Sunday
and I didn’t have
to get up I
got up.
