Morning Conversations


I am a professional adult. With a job.
And coworkers.
And tasks.

There's also a shared understanding that 
I'm not even worth approaching pre-coffee.

Communication is already a tricky beast 
when people are well and functioning.

So, I just try to save everyone the trouble and potential despair
by just waiting a few minutes after I walk in the door
to get settled,
have a sip of coffee,
and pick up where I left off before.

It might be something profound like self-reflection
or meditation,
or just slowing down to BE in the moment
before taking on the world.

But really, coffee. Now. Please.
I barely understand English yet,
and I'm not entirely sure how I got myself to the office.
