why i want breakfast for dinner

Today, everything

Today, everything happens

at once:

The poached eggs harden

as the bread pops.

The fan stops

as the shower drains.

The sky darkens,

as five crows fly over.

We woke at the same moment

and reached for each other.

It is the synchronicity of today

that I adore:

two mouths opening at once

to taste the benedict,

as it begins to rain.
