Uneventfully I awoke.

Unsurprisingly the sun beating hot on the single paned windows –

Caused dew drops of moisture to form

Dragging myself out of bed,

Discarding one used shirt for another,

Shedding pants and underwear,

For cleaner clothes

And finally superimposing this day’s ‘outfit’ over my skin.

I’m up.
