My little old copper alarm clock rests on my desk tick tocking away each inevitable second of the day only to shake rattle and ring me to wake every morning As I lay there in bed half dead sometimes wishing maybe that I was achy and tired stretching and scratching like a jungle cat I feel the morning crawl into my house The smell of fresh coffee creeps under my door my sisters radio blares the newest teen sensation and drowns out the morning news light seeps in through cracks in my curtains and the cold of a winter night forces me to burrow back under a warm heap of scratchy old quilts as I tell myself five more minutes and Ill get up I contort myself into a comfortable knotty little ball under the heavy coverings and bury my head into the broken-in old feather pillow searching for warmth and what remains of my last dream BRRRIIIIAAAAAANNNNGGGGG ka-tank tank ka-tunk My brain is electrocuted to life by the cantankerous little alarm clock Its fine springs and wires click into their places the polished metal bells get beat by the whipping hammer as it snaps back and forth The bells scream out in alarm It hops and jumps does the wake up dance on its stubby little legs just to tell me its time to go As the clock stops dancing I reach out from my cave with a daring hand and grab it Its shockingly cold and damp nearly frozen by the night air that had blown in through my still open window Only after Ive set the clock down do I notice the face has been frosted over by the nights dew The ticking hands run behind an opaque wall of ice doing their best to keep the time despite their arctic environment Just as I was about to call it a day and crawl back under the blankets the coffee gods
