that’s crazy talk

by Dennis Scharnberg

Some things to do at daybreak:

—let in the morning air

—wipe the dust off two shoes

—consider ways to change the facts

—use the word “crumble”

—fill the house with a pleasant aroma

—write letters for an hour or two

—think fifteen minutes ahead

—be drowsy but do not doze
