Slept with the Window Open | A Poem by G.S. Katz

Slept with the window open
Clarity through cool breezes
Good dreams for once
Just enough morning chill
To don my light jacket
Reached into my pocket
Found a dog treat
Left over from sometime in the spring

Shaved most of my beard
Leaving only some chin music
Deli coffee still only $1.25
French Vanilla, dark, no sugar
No bagel, wife says I gotta lose 10 pounds
Home to oatmeal and blueberries
Could be worse
