Don't Lose the Morning (or "Sloth")

a dream of rest extended
until mid-day; if you lose
the morning you'll

be running the rest of the
day to catch up....still....
delicious to close your

eyes against the world and
lapse again into sweet sleep
and those oft-coursed dreams

of what? Desires
in a dressing-gown, moving, sluglike,
room to room, leaving a clobber

of debris behind, teacups, the
crusts of a late breakfast, the
kitchen, hastily cleaned before

drowsing into a late afternoon
