Good Morning

Know why mornings would shine yellow and blue through our window? Love is bullshit in the morning, that's why.

I would like you in the morning, like nothing else.

We'd have a conspiracy of connection before 9 a.m., a hand on your waist while the Cream of Wheat bubbled on the burner, a (single) loud slurp of my coffee, a roll of your grinning eyes, toasting a bagel, spreading the sky.

Our day cracks open between the friendship of our fingertips. The history of our lives celebrated daily through common acts of courtesy.

Growing old together happens on Tuesdays, not just on birthdays.

This word "love" is overused, seems to me. It's lost much of its meaning. What is the main ingredient of loving you if not liking you? Enjoyment would be ours together in the morning. I would wake up to be with you. I would like you like a motherfucker in the morning.

thanks, tth! i shied away from a hand on your ass, per lori saying i was coming off as having an ass obsession. i think waist turned out to be a better choice.

I like/love this! Well done! So real!
Oh, and for the record, you have an ass obsession. I'm glad Lori called you on it. ;)

Very cool. Gritty and-like Tori said-real. I like it a lot more than the sappy stuff some people try to pull off. Good luck with the Blogathon! ;)

I have ass issues. (Thank you Ed for sharing that with everyone.) "Waist" was the better choice for this one.

ed said...

clearly, i'm the one with ass issues. first and foremost, that i can be an ass. please don't all chime in with agreement at once. thanks for the love on this piece. now that i'm part of the blogathon, i'm going to attempt and crank up the volume and truth and color of the pieces a little bit. it may all backfire and hey, i'll be an ass if it does:)

An ass with taste. There a stand where they sell guys like you?

ed said...

Lori said...
