Early Morning



Sirens and the whine
of eighteen-wheelers
paint daybreak
with wake-up calls.

Sounds that weave
their hurry
fracture restful sounds
of night.

I waste little time
becoming absorbed
in front-page headlines
so as not to hear
the wails and whines
of highways wrought with racing.

I succeed until
the fast-moving freight
from Dallas
intrudes upon the storyline
of what I read.

Then, I acknowledge defeat
and surrender my tea leaves
to the morning.
