"It Might Be Otherwise"

I wake without opening my eyes

to the same early morning talk show.

I untangle from my sheets and stumble to

the bathroom, my eyes still half shut.

It might be otherwise.

I force my eyes open enough

to put my contacts in,

then brush my teeth.

I wander back to bed,

hopeful for another few minutes

of much needed sleep.

It might be otherwise.

I get back up

on my mothers second shout

and throw on the first

presentable thing.

It might be otherwise.

I then start my new routine.

It might be otherwise.
