Thai Chicken Buddha Bowl — photo, courtesy of Damn Delicious. You’re welcome :)

The day began
with one small person poking my face
in the dark

A larger one
was making whiny sounds
that made me feel like

I was trapped
in a reversal of a Charlie Brown special,
except

The smaller peoples
were the ones
who went

Also, a larger,
germ-laden one happened
to be breathing

Germs into the space
beside me, which made me think
I really need

To get one of those
credit cards that give you
frequent flyers miles

Because beach
sounds like only thing
I need in my ear

Just then
an e-mail poured over coffee,
with a recipe

For a
Thai Chicken Buddha bowl
and I realized

That perhaps
my day was just starting
to look up

Happy weekend to all. I’m already over Winter!
