Ante Meridiem Redux (the same damn thing, but now it rhymes)

These days, above all else, I am sane
Sleep seven hours a night
And vow not to fight with the morning sunlight
That colors the air with its stain

I’ll take a handful of vitamin pills
For the fruit I’ve forgotten
Has begun to go rotten
A large coffee will do for the thrills

I take a walk in the cool a.m. air
For once I’m making good time
While thin yellow sunshine
Grants grace to the world that is there

In a heartbeat it all becomes real
Objects snap to their places
For a moment their faces
Resonate with platonic ideals

Time stands still in the crystalline shine
Fragile and lit like a microscope slide
Suspended in its span, I briefly understand
It’s not enough for a life, but it’s mine

Clarity dissipates silently
The fine balance is lost
But I know it’s the cost
Truth returns if I just set it free
