Morning Bedroom 

clothes crumpled on the floor 
exhausted after a day 
of soccer    

and British Bulldog 

my eyes weight 
of a bag of spuds 
try to open but pulled  

back up into the sleep  

until  creaking floorboards 
walk mum and my 
clean clothes 

into the bedroom 
where i pull on 
a new day
