The Bowl

This morning
at 7:45

all I wanted
was a cup

for my drug
of choice

to get me
fully awake.

I opened
the door

stepped into
the kitchen

and something
on the floor

something in
Pern’s bowl

something there
caught my eye.

Little legs
slightly moving

making not
a squeak

the mouse
floated

awaiting its
rescue

but not
by me

Prompt: About the morning or
takes place during the morning
