The Regular

warm the heart with a mug

The chip in the mug

lets my lip know the sipping side.

Burnt beans and water mark

the morning begun.

Just out of daybreak’s glare,

we prop on pillows and psalms,

choosing once and future dreams

to share before chores.

You can call Love what you want,

I know what fills my cup, spills

into a smile.
