its all over

silence from the snooze bar

leaky squeak of the shower knob

hiss of the coffee machine steam

ding of the burnt tinged bagel

muffled click of the deadbolt

squeak of worn brakes

quiet silence of an expired mp3

rattle and huff of the cooling engine

quiet snuff of the mechanical door

I wait all eight hours for the happy symphony of windows shutting down

squeal of arming the alarm

bright goodbye’s and sunny see ya tomorrow’s

I gotta get these brakes fixed

jingle of keys that alert Fido

grocery bags crinkle on the counter

beep of the microwave popcorn

last gurgle of beer

and ping of the empty bottle in the full trash bin

white noise of a static channel

is it too early in the morning

or too late at night?
