Unconventional Breakfast Rituals (American Norms)




Coffee

that's just so freshly
brewed—


none other than

by
yourself,


once you stood up—
self-driven



American
morns—or

silver afternoons,


a nice mug for it..

(or some type of vessel)


accompanied by one's favorite 90s

music lineup & something for

the ears,

(like determining unduly cast away earworms)


during

the last week of September
and for the months after—



..could be an enjoyable sip



(farther, once more, in our roundabouts)



could be a nice start








Author's Notes/Comments: 

3rd Reedition (10.08.2022 [06:20]) Added the following, or beside the poem's title, as its subtitle: (American Norms).

 

2nd Reedition (10.08.2022 [05:56] )  Free verse was restructured by moving "—" in [deemed] more appropriate spaces because of its affective quality, like (perhaps) a function served by a "caesura" that could mean a lot, or contribute to,  the conveyance of the verses' very expressive qualities (in or by themselves).

 

Reedited (09.30.2022):  Added more content and more delineated tropes and shaped a more grammatical English in the mix up against one's switch between paradigms (of the vernaculars held or modified as part of one's evolving cultural history or embedded linguistic indentity).

A Narrow Escape'

Folder: 
Just a thought!

Wanting to escape daily life on the Island,

She hopped in a canoe...

After paddling for three hours

She finally felt better..

Looking back, she realized...

She was still tied to the Island'
