Domestic life is not for the faint hearted

Mornings are ablaze with the glory of having survived

Yet another sleepless night, 24.5 grams of coffee 

Is the minimum dosage for getting the ball rolling

On the ever so muddy road of Wednesday morning

Tonight I’m gonna make an entire pot of popcorn

After everyone’s asleep, I’ll listen to the corn popping

In the microwave, sounding like muffled gunfire

Basking at how life tricked me into letting me thing I was the one 

who tricked her.
