Adagio of Comfort

His mornings are an orchestra
concise, complex, complete.
Routine and formal formula
to help make his ends meet.

The warming of his coffee brew
snapping buckles on his briefcase,
he softly hums to Voulez-Vous
with a mouth full of toothpaste.

  1. Usually following a routine over spontaneity is portrayed as a negative. This is refreshing take with a pleasant sing-songy rhythm (in a good way) to enhance the content.

    (PS – recently I have been giving a fyi to some folks that I used to go by Elusive Trope. Long story about why I needed to shift to another nom de plume.).
